Dealing With Chronic Pain #5



Today I feel way better than I have been in the last previous days. I consider that a wonderful thing. Yesterday I went out taking pictures and posted about my town.

Today I went out walking to my local Family Dollar buying a few hygiene items so Grandma Rose won't get all smelly. I hope someone reading this can use some of these tips.

BATHING AND HYGIENE  Part 3

Consider having grab bars in your tub or shower to minimize the risk of falling.

Install touch-free or automatic faucets and flushers that eliminate the need for turning knobs or levers while washing or using the toilet.

Get a long-handled sponge or brush.

Suctioned soap holders make it possible to soap up without grasping the soap or needing to use two hands.

Electric toothbrushes are useful and "water pic" appliances make brushing easier.

Get a dental-floss holder if flossing is difficult with two hands.

It is possible to open a toothpaste tube with one hand by holding the tube in the palm of the hand and using the thumb and index finger to open the cap.

Look for special long- and/or curved-handled toothbrushes.

Toothbrush handles can be made easier to grasp by wrapping a small sponge or foam hair curler around them.

Ask family members to fold the end of the toilet paper into a "V" to make it easier to grasp.

Have a grab bar or safety frame installed next to the toilet. A free-standing towel rack next to the toilet can also help you when getting off the toilet.

"Le Funelle" or "Sani-Fem" makes it possible for woman to urinate standing up.

Women who are troubled by occasional accidents of losing urine find that small panty liners or sanitary pads with adhesive backs help avoid potentially embarrassing situations.

Women who find tampons difficult to remove might try winding the tampon string around a pencil and gently pulling with both hands. Some brands have looped strings, making removal with either finger or a pencil easier.

Woman who use pads for feminine hygiene can keep the genital area clean by using a squeeze bottle kept by the toilet. These bottles can be found with a variety of spray nozzles.

I hope this has been of some help to someone. If you have any ideas you would like to share I'd love to know them.

I love words and came across a list of them. I'm going to add a word a day to my posts as long as I don't forget.

She was being so bilious so I left and went home.
