    And actually it was many more, but who remembers. When we got back to the world, and were able to take a shower, i recall thinking, oh god yes, the body says thank you very much. I will never know how we did it back then. Now, i sometimes shower 3 times a day.

    Mental Rose

    I've never liked taking a shower, for as long as I can remember. I don't think it's because I am lazy...I just think I could be using my free time in a better way. It doesn't relax me...and neither does a bath. I wash my hands obsessively throughout the day, so I ...

    It's Not Deliberate

    Clinical depression and an aversion to washing seem to go hand in hand- its not that i dont like or want to be clean- rather, personal hygiene takes a back seat to just being able to get through each day- which is exhausting, mentally, spiritually and physically. Sometimes my...

    No Excuse For Me

    Up until maybe four years ago (around sophomore year) I was really bad with showering.  During the summer, I would take maybe two showers per week then eventually but shower everyday during school.  Then I got into the habit of skipping showers during school (maybe take...
