Default showers make me feel disgusting!

and it's not just because I hate taking them

It's because I don't care about my body- who cares if it's dirty or clean, who's really going to notice?. i'm home alone anyway

it just makes me feel... uggg!

i'm all ready ugly under normal circumstances.

showers just make it worse (at least for me)

I totally totally understand. I hate showering or being naked in general, but yup. Anything that forces me to pay attention to my body. Eugh.

I take baths or showers in candlelight and play an audiobook in the background to distract me. It's not a perfect solution....I wish the disgust I have with my body would just leave ....but it's helpful and that's something. I'm sorry you struggle.

I'm not present when I have ta deal with this, I think about other things. Maybe if I was more attentive it would motivate me to lose weight?

Sometimes there is nothing more wonderful than a shower and I feel so good after taking one. Sometimes it feels so disgusting and gross there are no words to describe it. Sometimes the water helps my pain and other times it makes it so much worse. I can't figure out how to keep this disgust thing away but sure wish I could. I've been taking baths to keep clean instead of showers, they are more gentle. I'm sorry for anyone else who struggles with this. ((Hugs)))
