Once upon a time I tried not to talk about my health issues on the blog, it was happy place away from them. However, I came to the realisation as long as I didn't talk about it in a negative manner that actually speaking openly about the issues I face can be empowering for me and helpful to others. One place I struggle with is the bathroom, while I had some adaptions made last year, I really need more to make it into a place I can relax and wash with ease.
However, if money were no object there are so many things I could and would do to make the bathroom a place of relaxing enjoyment once again.
Bathroom Adaptions to Dream of
One thing I have given up on ever having in my life again is a bath. However, I didn't realise it was possible to buy a walk-in bath. What surprised me more was walk-in baths come in a number of different forms, both this larger upright design and a more traditional full-length bath, which can work well for people who cannot lift their legs so high.
For me, I think this high design, which also includes a shower to the side to help with hair washing, looks like the perfect mix of shower enclosure and bath. What's more, it comes with a hydrotherapy option, which is something I think could really help my pain levels, as there is something rather pain relieving about the bubbling of water around you, at least while you are sitting in it.
I guess the only thing to do now is save.
If like me you do have issues with the bathroom, be it anything from the ability to wash to the pain you feel when you go to the toilet, I must remind you, you are not alone. While the idea of such things can feel embarrassing and aren't something you may want to speak to anyone about, talking about it can be the first step to making your life a lot easier and of course if you want to just rant my inbox is always open.
Do you have any issues with your bathroom, or have you had any adaptions added?
