hi ! i really am happy to hear that you want to help your friend. she is fortunate. yes i have a horrific shower phobia. its odd because i am dealing with this rt now. heres how it goes for me. i start to anticipate the shower and begin to get anxiety. i try self talk, deep breathing, etc. finally when i think i have relaxed myself enough or gotten up enough nerve i head to the bathroom. i begin to undress and the symptoms start.......dizziness, faintness, jelly legs, weak legs, shortness of breath.....i get in and the panic gets worse and worse until i am full blown panic and have to fly out. a few times i had to call 911. i try to shampoo and condition my hair first, then soap my body. i save shaving for last. it sounds sooo foolish to many but its very very real. i am exremely anxious just thinking about it and admit that if i am too panicky before i begin i spongebathe instead and do it the next day. its hell. hope i have helped.kim
