I just had a spectacular shower.
Getting clean just hasn’t been the same since I came home from the hospital. And in the past month, it’s been a particularly daunting experience.
Now, you may not consider showering as an excessively strenuous activity. It is, however, one of the most physically stressful things I do. Standing for a long period of time is tiring and increasing painful. Add in the actual soaping and scrubbing, and I am absolutely wiped out by the time I exit the bathroom.
Yes, I’m here to tell you how awesome it is to shower sitting down. It’s like the relaxation of a bath without having to fill a tub with soon-to-be tepid water. And when you need to move around, you just stand up. No need to hoist yourself from the floor and hope you don’t fall on your a$$. (No one wants to be the person who died in a bathroom accident.) If you are eco-sensitive, this should certainly use less water. And if you are particularly dirty, you won’t be sitting in your own grime, as you would in a regular bath.
The stool has a padded, antibacterial swivel seat and adjusts in height. I paid $38 at a medical supply store via ebay.
