    Mental Rose

    On Active Duty

    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.

    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...

    I'm Sure I Did..
