There are times I have scared myself silly while driving. Forgetting where you are going and how to get there is bad enough, but not trusting your instincts to stop or go when the light changes can be even worse and dangerous to yourself and others.

Problems Showering with Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome by Adrienne Dellwo


Problems Showering with Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

I struggle with showering and getting out of the shower. My shower is a converted bathtub. The middle was cut out for the opening, but it is wide and not low enough for someone with Fibromyalgia. Although it couldn’t be lower or water would run out. Luckily there are handles attached in several places so I have something to grab on to as I enter and leave the shower.

Even if it were still a bathtub I wouldn’t be able to take a bath as I can’t sit down in the tub or get up out of it.
