Like most I don’t shower regularly, twice a week maybe? Brush my teeth even less, change my clothes every couple days if I am not going anywhere but maybe my shirt every day if I am. It just doesn’t occur to me, not really a question of laziness or lack of caring it just doesn’t cross my mind to take care of myself.
I notice all the time that people react to me, most are too polite to say anything about it though. I wish I took better care of myself but the days kind of bleed together and my memory doesn’t work well. I actually like baths, laying in the water makes me feel like all these problems I have bleed out of me. like they are seeping though my skin in a black viscous ooze and polluting the water but not me anymore.
I feel like the water is kind of other-worldly or mystical. It changes things and makes me feel better but I don’t think to rest in it unless I am really upset otherwise I shower.
