I realized soon after moving into our first RV that I would no longer be able to take advantage of those buy 2 get 1 free on the entire site deals at The Body Shop for bubble bath. Because we did not have a bathtub, there would be no long hot soaking bubble baths for me. For a long time, I dreamed of taking a bubble bath and even thought about getting a motel room or cabin at one of the many RV parks we worked at during the 13 years we lived our RV life.
Every time we went on vacation or on any extended trip away from the RV, I always picked up some bath salts or some bubble bath so I could just lay back and relax and soak in the tub. Those times always felt really extra special because of not having a tub at home.
Now that we have bought another house and have a real live bathtub of our own again, I am still not able to take a bubble bath. Because of my colostomy, I have not yet figured out how to do it. For one thing, I am afraid that if I get down into the tub, I won’t be able to get up! I have read about some options but I have not tried them yet. One thing is a “cap” for the stoma, which I can not for the life of me figure out how that would work. Another is to just take off the pouch, and not worry about what happens. Um, don’t think so. I know I’ll figure it out soon.
What is keeping you from taking a bubble bath?
