Fear of showering

While I do manage to shower regularly enough, I always have anxiety about it. I'll procrastinate and put it off all day if I have to go somewhere the next day. I just hate the anxious feelings I have that are associated with it, and I'm not sure I'll ever be able to get rid of them.

Why not take baths? I'm sorry you fear showering. How torturous. I love my almost daily shower. Stay safe! :peace:

I do like to take baths sometimes. But I don't really take a bath to get clean because I don't really feel clean if I wash in a tub, I more take baths to relax. Especially if I have to wash my hair, then the bath water gets really gross. I still force myself to shower, I really wish I could enjoy it more. One day I hope to actually have my dream bathroom with a beautiful glass door big shower and I hope it will help. Whenever I get to shower in a really nice bathroom (not often) it's much better. Not that my bathroom is bad by any means. Hmm.
