I hurt my back three weeks ago and haven’t been able to take a bath since then. I’m afraid that I wouldn’t be able to get out of the tub if I sit down in the water. So now it’s showers.
I prefer a bath because I can relax and read for a while. Can’t do that in a shower. Nor can I talk on the phone in the shower. And, I think I probably use less water in a bath.
But for now. I’m taking showers. I hope some time soon I’ll be back to my usual bathing routine. However, the effects of the shower are very refreshing, and I spend a lot less time in the shower than I do in the bath.
