I still am using an ugly metal and plastic shower seat. My old OT said to consider this a permanent accommodation and try to see sitting for showers as a luxury (think expensive spa get-away), rather than a necessity or safety requirement. I think I might eventually try to invest in something like this teak shower bench, because I think it really might help emotionally, but financially, that is a very low priority right now. Here are other possible options if/when the time is right: Corner Bench, Shower Seat, Arched Shower Stool, another Corner Design, Rectangular Shower Seat, with Handles, fancy, yet another Corner, simple and elegant.
My left arm is still pretty useless in there, due to both strength and lack of precision in dexterity, as well as the inability to move my shoulder much without pain, but I'm becoming fairly proficient in single-handed shampooing.
I have several friend who have seizures and/or pass out regularly. They are unable to shower without adult assistance, and this is a many-years "normal" in their lives. I have new empathy for them. It has been a long (almost) 10 months to regain this measure of independence, but I am so blessed and thankful!
Do any of the worthless idols of the nations bring rain? Do the skies themselves send down showers? No, it is you, O LORD our God. Therefore our hope is in you, for you are the one who does all this. - Jeremiah 14:22
