No, but...: No, the anxiety itself won't kill you, and it's important to remind yourself of that. At the same time, anxiety is an independent risk factor for suicide... So get thee to a doctor and get the help you need. Anxiety can be effectively treated with help.

Depends on the cause: Some medications cause drooling. The easiest solution is: sugar-free gum or candy. This doesn't fix the problem but encourages you to swallow often, so drooling is less of a problem. Another solution some doctors use is atrovent nasal spray, sprayed under the tongue. Anticholinergic medications are sometimes helpful too.

Be a friend: Treat an individual with autism with respect and kindness. Try to be a friend. Be sensitive to: loud noises, bright lights, and touch. Some may not be comfortable being touched, so ask first. The individual may not understand your facial expressions, so try expressing how you feel with your words or in some other way. Some do better with games, cards, or puzzles, offer to play one.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question! I do exercise, and watch what I eat, so I'm hoping the weight gain will be minimal.
