It’s great to see you have such a positive attitude. The gargling is a pain but when the mouth sores and gunk become too much, you can consider using a Waterpik on the lowest setting. Use the tongue scraper and put a spoonful of magic mouthwash into the warm water. It works really well at that point when you feel you just don’t want to bother with gargling anymore.
