Do you ever get the urge to sit in the shower? Have you?


Please read the title carefully as it says, sit. I haven't done this in a while, but in recent times I've been so demoralized that I've simply had to sit down in the shower, as standing was too demanding... with the shower head pouring over me.

You can also take this a step further and take a bower if you truly want to be ridiculous. Which is a bath-shower combo of lying in a full bathtub with the shower on. I had a family member that used to engage in these, and would speak often of it, and think it's where I got the idea to sit down in the shower when feeling really down. It's hard to talk yourself into getting up if you do this, so please be careful.

High-level security information here, so share at your own peril. So have you? I'm curious if I'm the only really weird person when it comes to depressing showering techniques.

i haven't done this out of depression, mainly because when i'm depressed i try to get the shower over with as quickly as possible because i hate being alone in the silence with my own thoughts

but i have taken many a sit down shower when i've been sick. crawling into the tub, barely cognizant of reality, a fever of 102....ahh..

nobody exists on purpose. nobody belongs anywhere. everybody's gonna die ~~

If you like pina coladas and gettin caught in the rain, follow me on Twitter @audreytheworst . I never talk about pina coladas or rain. But surely you like other stuff. If you don't, get some other interests already, geez.

so true. I'm kind of the same anymore now that I think about it. I get in and get out for the most part. Back at home though, I think I'd stay planted in the shower more often, not wanting to get it over with in the hopes that I could avoid returning to my life.

I do. I also drop to my knees sometimes. I be in deep thought while the water is hitting me. Its like a safe haven of mine to have the water just engulf me while I'm kneeling/sitting. In that moment I don't have a care in the world.

There is something seriously therapeutic about it in a way. Almost has a being in a safe place feel, for your thoughts, whatever. I'm not sure what i'm trying to say here, but I feel ya. Ya'll making me feel better already for my antics.

Sometimes when I don't feel good (physically or mentally) I just want to go sit in the hot water but not run a full bath. Eventually I stand up and finish a shower before going to lay in bed.

My greatest point is my persistence.

I am pretty sensitive to long showers. I dry out. So I pretty much get in, wash myself off and get out.

Have done it. My childhood home had a removable showerhead so I sat down to use that quite a few times when transitioning from bath to shower. Then as a teenager did it once just to see what it was like with a wall-fitted showerhead (didn't enjoy it, water got cold by the time it reached me), and once because of a soul crushing emptiness where I felt like it would be impossible to ever move from that spot (angsty much).

**** you and your mandatory custom signature.

The only time I've ever sat in the shower was when I felt like I was going to pass out. I felt like that sometimes when I would shower before eating breakfast.

Not unless I've cleaned the tub first so no, I don't do that often but I've leaned my body against the tiles and have drifted off to sleep quite a few times in the shower

No. I'd hate to put my butt where feet have been. It gets cleaned, sure, but still. Feet. Obviously not a feet person. They're like weird hands. It's gross. :/

Though there was one person with nice feet. Not a sexual reaction, just that they were cute.

Sorry, derailing. Kinda.

PTSD doesn't mean you're going insane.
It means you're sane and reacting from something that was insane.

Yes, in the winter I like to sit in the shower and have the hot water on me. So relaxing.

Yes, I sit on the floor of the shower for the first few minutes then quickly clean myself off. It's really relaxing, especially after working. I've actually drifted in and out of sleep sitting in the shower, back when I had to wake up very early.
