I have an embarrassing confession to make.
I know I'm not alone in this, because other lupies have told me they do the same.
Please don't think badly of me because of this but... (whisper) I no longer shower every day.
You see, lots of everyday things leave me utterly exhausted.
One of those things is having a shower. I can do it, but I have to just rest for half an hour, sometimes longer, afterwards.
All in all, a five minute shower takes a big chunk out of the energy I have available to survive the day.
So, I'm afraid, I only shower every second day.
But at least I'm not the only one with this terrible secret.
When I talk on social media about everyday things that leave me exhausted, one of the things that lots and lots of lupies will respond is that showering leaves them utterly exhausted and they have to rest. As it turns out, my embarrassing secret, isn't just mine. It's "normal" life for lots of lupies.
So if you're one of those people who enjoy a relaxing shower after a long, hard, day, make the most of it. For some of us, having a shower is a long, hard, day.
