Growing up as a child, we lived in a tenement yard where we shared bathroom facilities. To use the shower you would have to make appointment or wait in line. Because of that I would not bother to shower most times.
It seems like it grow with me because at age 37 I still can’t bother to shower. I live in on my own with my on and off boyfriend. I keep the house clean, scrub the bathroom, but I just hate to bathe. I make sure I have plenty bath and body works sprays, plenty roll-on and perfume. When my boyfriend is home, I just turn on the shower and have it running for some time, then run under it and come out then spray up and he thinks I am well showered. I have lots of wipes because most times I wipe up to go to work. The only time I may take a quick shower twice per week is when I am on my menstrual cycle.
Dear Anonymous: It is the first I am hearing of a situation like this. Cleanliness is godliness and using just wipes and the best smelling perfumes will not stop the fact that you are unclean. Your situation growing up should have boosted your love for taking frequent baths, not discouraging it.. You mentioned on and off boyfriend, maybe he knows you are not maintaining good feminine hygiene as to why he does not stay. How do you get the residues of those roll-on and sprays off? I am seeing the words GERMS, BACTERIA and INFECTION in your letter. It is required that humans shower at least twice per day (morning and before bed).
It is not too late to start miss. Get a rag, get a soap, go in the shower, turn on the pipe, wet your rag, lather the wet rag with soap, scrub your body from head to toes (you will require months of extra scrubbing), pay keen attention to your crease areas and vagina, stand under the water, wash off yourself properly, get a clean towel, dry yourself thoroughly, moisturize your body, look at yourself in your mirror then write me back and tell me how you feel.
