Maybe you have an illness that causes a lot of fatigue and exhaustion, and you just don’t have the energy to make it into the shower – much less stand there and complete all the personal cleansing and grooming you need to do. Maybe you have a chronic pain condition, and it hurts to raise your arms above your head, or feel the sting of water droplets against your skin. Maybe you have depression and struggle with the lack of motivation it can cause.
There are countless reasons why a person’s health can make showering difficult (or, at times, impossible). And whether you need to sit down in the shower, use a shower stool, only take baths or rely on dry shampoo and baby wipes most days, know that is 100 percent OK. There are so many folks in the same boat who understand; you are most certainly not alone.
Though the struggles that come with showering aren’t funny, sometimes it can be helpful to laugh about some of the more ridiculous aspects with others who “get it.” If humor is one of the tools you use to cope with your health issues, the following memes are for you.
