I love showers. And swimming. My barriers are all around how much time and effort it takes with next steps - hair drying, face routine, dressing…

Oh my gosh, I can't stand to take a shower! The thought of the process I have to go through makes me turn away. I'm glad I'm not alone.

I like the shower itself. I HATE all the tasks I have to do in it and afterwards.

Same! I found that doing a spot wash with a washcloth and soap can get the basics taken care of quickly while I’m already in the bathroom changing clothes. But a full on shower is like a whole thing, so right now I only do it when I wash my hair. Because if I’m going to be tortured anyway it might as well be worth the extra effort. So those are the days when I wash my whole body and my hair and do all the little self care things like a hair and face mask, shaving, etc. I call it my spa day. I listen to music, watch funny videos, trim and paint my nails, put on the lotions and rose oil and witch hazel and whatever else I have planned for that spa day. I like to do a facial massage with a raw honey mask after a clay and green tea mask. It’s a whole thing. And my husband is the sweetest, he likes to encourage my spa days by bringing me my favorite beer and snacks to have in the tub. He puts them on a special rack we keep in the closet and take out for spa days. I genuinely prefer a hot bath, but I choose to shower more often… because I have no sense of time and if I’m in the tub for too long I’m taking a nap XD. I just remind myself of how fun and relaxing spa days are and it makes me excited to wash my hair and do all the things. Otherwise, I hate washing my hair. I’d rather jump off a bridge, and I’ve realized that the constant water beating on me from the shower head makes me feel over stimulated. So that’s why I prefer baths. But, again, I need to wash up each day and it’s going to be a spot wash most days because it takes less steps and gets the job done while I’m already changing clothes in the bathroom.

Sometimes I just have a stand in it and zone out shower. It's great! Doesn't really make you clean and makes your hair feel weird when it dries, but it's so soothing. Give it a go! (This isn't how I shower usually though, but sometimes I do this just to regulate myself if I'm really not coping)

Yep, hate getting in, hate getting out. Tricked my brain into thinking it’s a good idea by getting a nice shower gel.

Am I the only one that takes showers like all the time? But not like real showers where you actually wash yourself. Like I full on sit down in the shower and dissociate for way longer than I care to admit…

This is what my son does. He hasn’t been diagnosed with ADHD but he is on the autism spectrum. He can sit in the shower for hours after he gets off work and let his worries or anxieties of the day just go down the drain with the dirt.

I like showers, but on days when I'm stressed and have more sensory issues, it's too loud. I usually know I'm depressed when I don't feel like grabbing a shower.. Have you tried a bath instead? Maybe you'll like that more..

I Shailee confessed to my dermatologist, that I did not shower every day. He said, "Thats good!"I Shailee confessed to my dermatologist, that I did not shower every day. He said, "That's good!". Not what I was expecting! He explained that your skin doesn't need to be stripped of it's oils that often. "Just wash the dirty parts most days is better for most people. Hey, I'm doing something right!😀

Omg me too!! It is so bad. So hard for my partner to understand. Hehe he is a very confused neurotypical person a lot in our house. But he is getting used to just accepting that so many things don't make sense that I do that it makes more sense than when I do something that does make sense! :)
