I know how that feels, BUT I find showering to be very therapeutic and always feel somewhat better afterwards. I can be relaxing. I can stand there and take deep breaths and I have figured out positive things in the shower. lol
I bathe daily, because I can read my book in peace in the bathtub and nowhere else, but I don't wash my hai daily, and there are times when I am kind of proud of that like "Wow, it must be bad, if I look like this." or even "maybe someone will notice". I totally did wash my hair right before meeting with social workers the past 2 Fridays and also on Sunday, but catch me on a Thursday and good luck...
When I was really sick I did.
I have to shower everyday or I can't function even a little. It also takes away my aches in these old bones. Some days I stand there till the water is almost cold just meditating and breathing trying to relax.
Showering takes more energy than I have some days. My dh thinks it's gross but I just glare at him. When I'm depressed, even showering is evil to me.
yep. some days I don't even get out of bed.
I completely understand, I do the same thing. But it is hard to get my husband to understand. I wish there was a way that they could just feel what we go through for at least 5 minutes. Maybe they will understand better.
