    I'm Sure I Did..

    Probably even several times... Lately the longest  has probably been around 3 days.. But there's been some timese, when I lacked all kinds of motivation, so that I wouldn't shower for a week or longer, and probably brush my teeth just every other day and things like that...

    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...

    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...

    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.
