I’m irrationally scared of taking showers.
I (26 F) Sometimes go days to weeks without taking showers, people have said stuff out of concern and I just play it off like I’m “lazy” but really:
I don’t like being cold and I can only keep the water so hot before it burns, but outside of the water is cold. I have a space heater in my bathroom but it doesn’t really do much.
I’m scared of ghosts and for whatever reason that fear is amplified in the shower.
I live alone and I have this fear that someone is going to break into my apartment while I’m in the shower (despite the 2 heavy duty locks I have) and that adds to the fear that my cats are going to get hurt, and I don’t care what happens to me but I couldn’t live with myself if my babies got hurt.
It’s so embarrassing and I’m even more embarrassed because I’m going to be turning 27 in March and I’m scared of the shower. It’s no wonder I don’t have any friends.
