    yeehaa I feel great. :smile:
    because of my depression and other mental problems I have had difficulty in finding the motivation to shower but after failing to for like 2 months lol I just had one. :biggrin: I absolutley stunk.

    I feel embarassed posting this, does anyone else have a phobia of washing? I am gonna try and have at least one a week from now on.

    Well done, sosotired, I don't have a phobia exactly but I do know what its like not to have the will or the energy to have a shower, no need to be embarrassed, I think you will find quite a few people here have had similar 'lapses'

    Take care Hazel xx

    i wud of been embarrised on posting that but then again if i was afraid of water then i can understand. when depressed ppl are so drained they cant be bothered in the end to anything.

    its like ive had depression for awhile but had to kick my own butt to get a job and that really did hurt lol.
  5. I'm really glad you could share this with us. You're really improving and I'm proud of you :hug: keep it up! Little steps, little goals, at first--slowly you'll make bigger leaps and maybe your whole life will turn around :smile:
    I'm really happy for you.

    when i did not shower for a while, it was because I felt both apathetic and so little of myself that I did not deserve to feel good...great that you could do that for yourself...I found bringing my music into the bathroom made it easier for me...just a thought...big hugs
