Why oh why do I HATE showering so much?  I used to like showers but not since I got sick.

Is it because:

  • it wipes me out just to prep for a shower; gathering towels, setting up the shower chair, fetching shampoo or soap, disrobing, combing out my hair, etc
  • i hate showering in a shower chair; spots get missed
  • it uses up tons of spoons to get clean; all that scrubbing and hair washing
  • i now have to shampoo my hair several times to get all the oil out of it
  • i have to use all sort of concoctions to get rid of the armpit stink
  • i almost alway run out of hot water before I'm finished
  • i can't reach everywhere that needs soap
  • the cat is slowly ripping apart my scrubbie and I keep forgetting to buy a new one
  • i can never dry myself off very well because I'm sitting on the edge of the tub while toweling off
  • combing my hair out makes my arms ache
  • my hair takes forever to dry
  • i only smell/look good for about 24 hours but can only shower once or twice  a week i.e. it is an enormous exercise in futility
  • i don't want to undress in the cold
That about covers it.  And yes I really should be in the shower right now instead of writing about how much I don't want to shower.
