Shower Power

Taking a shower. What comes to mind when you think of it?

Taking (or attempting to take) a shower

For many of us with MS, fatigue comes to mind. I myself have read so many comments about being tired and worn out after taking or attempting to take a shower.

Progressing to SPMS

I recently received a blessing by having an accessible shower in my new apartment. So, being able to take a shower for me became a luxury, one which I needed at this point in my progressing to SPMS (Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis).

Showering offers a sense of normalcy

Now taking a shower has proven to be a miraculous event for me. You may feel the same way when you do it. We feel refreshed and clean and many times emotionally better. In essence, we feel a normalcy which we may not have had or felt for a long long time.

Yes, there is Power in a Shower.
