Morning diddle,

My shower is broke. :( I have real trouble getting in and out of the bath and washing my hair makes me cry, i have to ask my 12 year old sometimes and i hate asking people to do stuff for me.

Good luck hun and i hope its not too painful for you. :)

hugs, kel xxx

hi yes thanks all or your love will leave hair till tonight can get awat with it so will wait not really planning anything today jus take it easy i think love to you all diddle x

I know the feeling diddle i have to get my partner to wash my hair, bit embaressing at 40!! xx cuddles to all xx


I know the feeling although I have a bath board and grab rails in my bath/shower i just dont have the energy in my arms to lift, even typing is hurting a bit and im resting on the table (laptable) but i bought some dry shampoo this week will see what that is like, just like hairspray and i reckon even my son will do that for me, as long as he dont have to help me to the bathroom lol.

Hope you get some rest diddle.


Hi all,

Like kialaya, I use dry shampoo on days I think I just can't do the whole shower thing! Golly they have improved it from when I was a girl. It's spray form and absolutely brilliant. You don't look like you have poured a load of talc in your actually feels ok. It's been an absolute god send. Would recommend to all my fibro friends!

Gentle hugs x
