    (I did not write this. It's by The Tiger Lillies. But it's fitting, and I've already written what I'd write, so it'd be repetitive to write it again. But, this issue is on my mind. Haunting me.)

    your legs ache,your back aches, you dribble down your chin.
    your steps are like mountains and so you must begin,
    to gasp and stagger, and dribble down your chin,
    you dribble, you dribble, you dribble down your chin.
    the faces, look at them, they all avert their eyes,
    can't stomach, can't stomach, can't stomach your demise.
    you gasp and you stagger, and dribble down your chin,
    you dribble, you dribble, you dribble down your chin.

    the faces, look at them, they all look away,
    can't stomach, can't stomach, can't stomach your decay.
    you gasp and you stagger, you dribble down your chin,
    you dribble, you dribble, you dribble down your chin,
    yeah.

    and every time i see you, it gets (it gets repeats 32 times)
    it gets a little worse.

    as they lead you, as they lead you (lead ya repeats 10 times)
    lead you to your hearse,

    you dribble, you dribble you dribble down your chin (repeats 3 times).
    you dribble down your chin.

    Growing old and having your body and mind shut down on you, before you actually die? Why on earth should that worry me? I mean, I'm only going to loose control over my bodily functions, fail to think and remember things, and such fun things. Nothing to worry about, nothing at all.

    I'm sorry krem I didn't mean it was trivial or anything because it's not...
    I worry about it because I'm in the throws of it already...
    I don't know your age but if you're young you don't need to stress about it yet..
    My Dad lived to be 81 and he didnt lose his mind and only his bodily functions in the last month or two...
    My Mum was 72 when she died and she didn't lose her mind or her bodily functions...
    what I meant by the question I asked was do you have a disability or something that makes you worry about this more? or I should just shut up cos I'm making this worse?

    It's because I'm experiencing symptoms at the age of 17. Memory loss, loss of motor control, lack of coordination and loss of cognitive abilities. Also my joints are getting bad, but I blame that on being fat and not moving much, hah.

    Have you talked to a doctor about your concerns? had tests done.?
    maybe see a physiotherapist for some easy exercises for your joints..
    memory loss is a symptom of depression I know...
