post in here if you've showered today

thread for one of the hardest self-care activities on earth (for some of us)

I've not done so yet. I am thinking about it though

I did indeed, as I do every morning, and wash my hair. I can't wake up into the world if I don't have a shower.

it needs to be said, I stink, so I am probably going to shower today

I've been awake since 25 past 4, because the food I had yesterday has been repeating on me- and I've apparently done more than just make a few bad smells
my carer took my nappy off today and almost died. not even she can figure out how spicy chicken can make someone so smelly

plus: I didn't get dressed yesterday or do anything, so their's that as well. I want to go out in my chair for a bit and I certainly want to smell human

I just had my evening shower at 4:30pm. Washed my hair and shaved also. I love feeling clean and fresh as there was a time when I was really unwell that I was bullied. I vowed to never not shower again.

showered (exfoliated as well) washed hair and shaved. Also gave myself a little mini pedicure and moisturized. Going for an eyebrow wax and a shellac manicure tomorrow. This kind of self care is so hard to bring yourself to do sometimes, but you feel so much better after! :)

I had time when I liked Bath.
I had time I don't.
Now I like again. But I'm very quickly. Only 10 minutes😭
