I have a personal lolcow that I’ve lowkey thought about making a thread on here, but she always privates the fuck out of all her online stuff. Anyway, she is embarrassingly transparent, like CWC level, and isn’t shy about her lackluster hygiene. She’s convinced that wiping her body down using a washcloth and a sink and only fully showering and washing her hair/entire body twice a week is an acceptable practice (and for someone who works with food). Her’s is the usual excuse, “I have depression, showering is haaaaard”I just can't. I do not understand this. Bathing is not some grueling task or even a mild inconvenience. Bathing is so enjoyable. Nice warm bathwater, some shower fizzies, maybe even a bit of bubble bath if you're feeling frisky.... You feel so relaxed and refreshed afterwards. It's something I legitimately look forward to at the end of each day. I'm gonna just say that if you dread bathing you're doing it wrong, ok.
And, honestly, I get that. I know what it’s like to just not be able to will yourself out of bed to care for yourself, even for days. Depression can be shitty like that.
What negates that potentially legitimate reason is the fact that both my personal lolcow and Luna are obsessed with constantly posting shitty makeup selfies and gross half nudes on social media for attention. If you’re too depressed to wash your rank ass, but you’re not too depressed to apply makeup like a tween and pose in front of your phone to fish for compliments online, you’re not depressed, you’re lazy.
