bath instead of shower

i see that you mentioned taking a hot shower as a form of mental relief. I have found that a hot bath is much more therapeutic than a shower, primarily because it lasts a lot longer, and you can relax and float. You can't relax or become bouyant while standing up.

To get even more comfort out of a bath, I would suggest trying bath salts.

This reminds me of another problem with my dad. In his current state of mental distress, he is overlooking some things. One of these things is his breath. His breath is currently quite strong and quite bad. Anybody who gets near him and catches a sniff of that is going to be turned off.
