“A nice hot shower will help ____” said no Spoonie ever! Why? Oh well, lets see:
- The spray of water hurts our skin
- The heat exhausts
- The standing is exhausting and painful
- The motion of washing body/hair etc fatigues the muscles and scrapes the joints
- Did I mention It hurts?
- Did I mention It is exhausting?
You know you have a chronic illness when spouse/partner says “whew babe, no shower today huh?” Laying in bed all day does not help the odor factor! 😢😜
Today I must drag my I’ve been up for 24 hours because of this damn pain induced fog brain to the shower.
