Need to reblog, beautiful use of style, textures
[Self Care When You Don’t Have the Spoons for Showering
1. Keep face wipes and deodorant by your bed. They’re easy and can make a huge difference in how you feel
2. Take sink showers. Washing your hair and face in the sink quickly works especially well if you’re a survivor having anxiety about being naked (yes, that’s totally normal)
3. Invest in a dry shampoo. You can use it in bed or sitting down on days when you can’t get up, it’s super easy, and it gets rid of oily hair really quickly
4. Use scented body lotion to make yourself smell nice- it’s grounding and makes you feel soft and clean without much effort
5. Air fresheners and scented candles can make your room smell nice and make you feel more fresh and together
6. Wear your favorite cozy clothes
7. Spray your favorite perfume on your clothes if you can’t handle changing out of pajamas
8. Sometimes if you use easy makeup products tinted lip balms can help you trick yourself into thinking you feel better]
These “no rinse” products, including the shampoo cap and the no-rinse shampoo and body wash, are also helpful:
They have both rinses/shampoos/washes which you dilute in warm water (and then use a washcloth to clean yourself) as well as wipes and the shower cap linked above which can be warmed up in the microwave.
I have moderately sensitive skin, and the shower cap and body wash we used for my partner after his surgery did not irritate my skin. YMMV, of course.
Reblogging because this could probably be useful for some folks who follow me. Plus a few are useful to me too. The scented candle thing is really nice, and I always derive comfort from my BPAL collection (to go with the #7 one).
this is important and relevant to my interests. probably my roommate too.
I should probably get some dry shampoo.
I’ve found that wet wipes make for easy sponge bathing and that really helps me feel cleaner when I can’t actually do the shower thing.
What? Why wouldn’t someone shower? Who needs a spoon to shower???
Serious answer: This is about people who have chronic diseases [think Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, etc.] - one might find themselves in so much physical pain or fatigue, that getting showered or dressed is EXTREMELY challenging or painful.
Spoons: references this story "Spoon Theory" - you should read it when you get a moment; it’s long but good. It allows those without a chronic disease to kind of understand how our energy will suddenly drop temporarily or just disappear after tackling some task that others may think is “no big deal”.
I hope no one chastises you for this; it’s a good question that everyone should understand.
Sorry for the long post on your dash, but this is important. (At least it is to me, and folks like me.)
That’s interesting. I always read this as a help for people who are chronically depressed and don’t have the energy to shower, dress, or even leave the bed.
It’s for both
Any type of illness, physical or mental.
I used to have depression and showering was actually a really huge task for me. This would have saved me a lot of bullying if I had seen this way back when
Hope it can save another
I wonder if Eidos Montreal has any idea what they’ve done to a large slice of gamers by putting so much of the damn focus on Garrett’s hands.
I mean, it’s a game about petty theft and breaking and entering: of course they need to show the protagonists hands. Prying open windows, picking locks, snatching up every gleaming metal object in a room: a first-person looter without hands in 2014 would be silly.
But, good god, did you have to spend that much time lovingly detailing every flick and twitch and arch and slide of those long fingers as they delicately fondle art and books and jewels, or showcasing the firm grip he has when climbing ropes and gripping the claw or blackjack? Did you have to give us such a long sequence of those slender hands when he admires a new brooch for his collection, with that final flick of his wrist as he pockets his new possession? Did you really, really have to include the way he uses those hands to guide himself around boxes and crates, before getting a sure grip on those heavy beams and levering them quietly but firmly out of his way?
Did you? DID YOU?
Because if you didn’t have to, but went ahead anyway…
From the bottom of my heart.

“When I watch Garrett’s hands touch and caress paintings and books, looking for switches, I can’t help but imagine that is how he must touch women. Finding their most erotic places, and pressing their buttons just right. I want him to touch me like that.”

Lemme just rub my head on your hand.
You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
An addendum: you cannot, in most states, buy fast food with your food stamps.
Furthermore, if you are caught abusing and manipulating the system, you can not only get yourself banned, but your children’s names banned from all government benefits.
We all need someone to look up to
How can hands be so appealing?
