Have you, or anyone else, seen someone exercising with long black sticks?

What do the sticks look like ? I see people all the time walking with the type of poles/sticks you use for skiing, but I have never seen them used the way you describe, ie being held in the middle.

Back in the 1990s, or maybe late 1980s, I used to see a lot of people swinging light dumbbells while walking, but I haven't seen those in probably 20 years. Back in the 1980s there were also people running with ankle weights. Never tried that, and I never see those anymore.

I cant go without taking a shower for more than one day i hate that feeling of being dirty. Although anhedonia can sometimes make you not want to do anything or take care of personal hygiene that you go days without realizing you havent taken a shower. I become forgetful. now not so much. Im starting to care for my body more. After all your body is a temple of God. just my two cents.

This is my favourite long running thread. Those long black sticks sound dangerous, could have someone's eye out with that as they run by you, maybe he has personal space issues...

What's the latest @helpless ?

Yesterday was the first day I skipped showering in a long time, but today, I'm back to showering.

And, my jogging continues as always, very rarely missing a day.

I used to worry about this way more, but now a days I think I will be okay. I also think that if I don't have it that I could go to someone else's house like a friend's and shower there. I just feel so bad if I don't have this ability to be able to shower, I need to have this always in my life or else I am not human. I always think about that one movie Bella where she is all worn out and life is so hard and she gets in this bathtub, that moment is so touching, I cried. This want to be able to shower sort of makes me fight for life more and I'm thankful.
Swt/Surrender, that is a great post. Keep at it and Never Give Up!

I would say the poles are probably three feet or so on each side of the middle pivot, and they don't have any points on the end like ski poles do. Also, the poles are oblong, rather than circular, probably about six inches or less across and maybe an inch of so thick . . .

I got a job, which seems to be helping my shower problem. Since I'm actually going places and seeing people I want to be fresh and not have stringy hair. Sometimes I skip a day, but never two.

In those moments under the steamy warmth of the misty shower head I think about all these sexy men my age and how we both mimic our facial expressions especially during this time and then I get sexually aroused and also ache for someone to love. Definitely love showering especially for those moments under the steamy shower head and thinking about sexy guys showering for sure. Going through this showering process helps me feel connected to people on a deeper level cuz it's something we all go through and feel the same about I think.

do you need to shower every day ? The skin cleans itself and you lose all the moisture in it, apparently

I`m bath man, I love stewing in my own juice but I do rinse off with the shower afterwards.

SFCO1, before giving up tub bathing many years ago, I also would shower after soaking in the bathtub.

Really love the shower especially after I've been stuck in my Trichotillomania mode for a few hours. Really breaks the habit to hit the shower! Man, I am getting balder and balder. But thank God for the shower interrupting me every single time! Gives me hope for a longer remission time every single time.
