Today Cracked had a bath. I know it sounds a silly thing to get all excited about but I am still struggling with ADLs so managing to have a bath every week is really good for me. I have even managed to clean my teeth a few times this week. Plus have proper breakfast and go to the shops and properly look after my bunny rabbit rather than just feeding, watering and keeping her clean.
My Mum is coming down tom and visiting the house so I am frantically trying to get rid of the smoke smell by burning incense. God bless my local corner shop, which sells a powerful concoction.
So what did I do in my body spa, I even managed to shave my legs and armpits and moisturise my face. The stupid thing is I have all these lotions and potions i have bought whilst high that I really should use. OK that will be my new thing to use my lotions and potions.
So what will I be doing with Mum? Well family dinner tom, which may or may not be stressful depending on whether there is a glass of wine to welcome me as I arrive at the house. Then Monday supermarket shopping and lunch and charity shop shopping. The rest of the time I am leaving them to spend time together as I think that is what granny wants. My family have a great ability to put me into child mode so we shall see what happens there. My therapist is calling Monday night to see how things are.
I have been thinking a lot about bad things that happened at work today for some reason - almost flashbacks. I am not sure why. Maybe work is on my mind. One thing I know is despite all the crap I still want to go back ASAP.
Anyhow more waffle but some good has come from today so that is good.
Hope all are well.

I've kept buying lots of lotions too... I find keeping them in sight helps and then when I have the urge to buy more I can think back to the huge row of products I have in my bathroom and manage to stop myself from buying more. It is hard though.
It's good you are having more regular baths. I personally find keeping clean a bit addictive and have at least one but sometimes have two or three showers a day and clean my teeth at least twice (but often three or four times a day) plus flossing. I've been trying to wash my hair less often lately because it keeps in better condition if I don't wash it quite as much and my scalp ends up less danruffy because it doesn't dry out so much if I don't excessively wash it. It's hard though because then I feel all manky if I'm not excessively clean. I think it must be an abuse thing...
I am not defined by my dissociation. It is part of my experience.

It is weird how abuse affects us differently... although I know some of this may be my BP too.
