Kaneda, glad to read your post. Right now, I am not jogging, although I have taken two showers a day when I was jogging, one in the morning before starting out the day, and another later in the day, after jogging.

I stayed off of the underarm deoderant, and only had some perspiration on my undershirt one time, so I put that undershirt away from the odor free clothes I wear.

I have put the deoderant back on when I was going to be "close" around people, and after being off of it, no burning.

Also, the itching has been greatly reduced since stopping the thiazide dieuretic.

For awhile, just walking was tiring me out a lot, but today, it wasn't tiring, and I'm hoping to get back to jogging.

Now that the weather is starting to warm up, I am once again starting to worry about snakes.

I try to watch where I am walking or jogging to. Obviously, when jogging, you can't notice snakes as easily as you can when you are walking.

With all of this talk about "social distancing" to avoid the coronavirus, you'd think that people like us would be safe from the disease, but unless we are total hermits, we cannot help being around other people, so even tho some of us might not have much social life, when we do go places we can still be exposed to other people carrying germs and viruses and diseases.

Well, I did not take a shower today.

Or yesterday, or the day before yesterday, or the day before I don't know exactly how many days it has been.

Because of the shutdown of everything due to the virus, I am now out of work, so I don't have to worry about being around other people, and it has probably been going into a week since I have taken a shower.

And, I am satisfied this way, although I would prefer to be working and earning a paycheck, where I would have to shower and use deoderants, and wear clean clothes.

I'd obviously prefer that, although I do enjoy being filthy after keeping up the being free of perspiration odor for so long.

I don't know about other people but when my pits start to stink I have to shower. I can't stand the smell of it.

I have showered once since that last post, and I have not had any perspiration odor as far as I can tell.

I need to give the walls of my shower/bath tub a very good cleaning, along with a lot of other household
chores and work on my car that I need to do, so being out of work at my paying job is giving me time to do a lot of things I've been putting off doing, but I still would be better off earning some money.

I am showering about every day and using deoderant.

I need to, among other things, put some lubricating plumbers grease in the shower diverter on the spout where the water goes into the bath tub.

The only way I know to do this is to stick the grease into the spout with a finger, and I don't like to do this because it is hard to get the grease off. I keep forgetting to do it, so this post will be my reminder to do it, after I log out of the message board.

Also, I need to work on the shower curtain rod some more and also clean the shower stall walls.

Until Friday of last week, I was "on furlough" from my job, and before starting back to work, I did a lot of laundry.

I will be going to work tomorrow, and will shower and wear clean clothes.

Congrats! You've taken the first step, which is probably the most difficult. Don't try to accomplish everything in one day; pace yourself, maybe one task a day. You can do it.

I am showering once a day now, before going out of my shack, from my self made Virus Panic Isolation.

With the hot weather, I am statrting to get perspiration odor, despite showering and using underarm deoderant. And, it is getting into my clothes.

I think that the fact that my car has no air conditioning is adding to this situation. If I stayed in my shack 24 hours a day, I might not get any perspiration odor because I do have a good air conditioning system to keep me cool.

I will definitely have to do some laundry.

I am glad to be back at work and earning a pay check after three months of no work, and no pay checks.

Hope all the rest of you who are in social isolation due to the virus (in that regard the Virus (hopefully) Protective measures have made little difference in my life since it has been so limited due to my SA-SP and the resulting social isolation my life consisted of before the virus scare, and as it cotinues.

I hope I find like-minded folks like myself who desire someone to smell their own armpits together. Like in the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind when Jim Carrey hid shamefully inside Kate Winslet's armpit after she had an emotional reaction to his lack of small talk in their relationship!

Thanks for the post, emilymoore. Thursday night, I did a load of laundry to which I added a freshener, so I now have a bunch of good smelling Plain White Ts to wear around my residence, and I can start singing "Hey There Delilah."

Despite all the Virus Restrictions, I had a good day at work yesterday.

SwtSurrender, thanks for the reply and the link to the video, which I watched and listened to the entire presentation and read the comments.

I am an open minded person and think the speaker had some things to say that are worth considering.

Thanks for the GIFs, SwtSurrender. I have seen that one, or similar ones before.

I am trying to get things straightened up in my shack, and also clean the shower stall/bath tub.
