Looks good! You carry the color a lot better than many people. You're lucky to have the complexion for it!

I went through a hair dying phase in college, which did in fact coincide with one of my most severe hypomanic phases (probably actually full-blown manic given the amount of trouble I got into...) I went from brown (natural) to obscenely fake stripey gold highlights, to blonde, to red, to auburn, to black. Then I had one of those malibu hair stripping treatments and cut it all off. Never even got around to trying fun colors that I couldn't get in a small town supermarket before I decided that it totally ruins the baby-fine texture of my hair.

After awhile, I realized that my "plain" brown hair is pretty spectacular with natural red and gold highlights. Even the grey still looks like pale gold streaks.

I also have been coloring my hair since i was 15.. Yes i was getting gray at 15 ( both my parents were gray by there mid 20's ) so ii have also been every color under the sun .. right now its just dark brown blackish ,, I have to color mine every 3 weeks because i cant stand seeing the regrowth . Im 44 Im not ready to let it go ,, Id have to shave my head and let the all gray/ wite hair grown in .., ack no cant do it.

And YES I understand the showering thing . ( i do wash up with a washclothe daily if I cant force myself to actually shower or bathe) . i FORCED myself the other day ..Its exhausting to me and then having to blowdry and flat iron my hair so i dont look like a poodle ,,, well you all get what i mean .. sometimes its just not worth the effort...plus its cold was 42 degrees in my house the other day ,, we just cant afford to heat our home . we have 2 small ceramic heaters i take one in the bathroom but its still so damn cold its hard to want to peel off 6 layers of clothes to hop in the bath or shower.

Yea, BlueInanna! It can most certainly be a victory! I struggle a lot with that when I'm depressed too. It's just too much. It's a really big indicator of how badly I'm doing, because I'm normally quite the fan of clean and tidy! Here's the thing: when I take one, I'll always say, "Wow, that's refreshing. Have I ever regretted taking a shower?" "NO!" So why is it so damn hard? Drives me up a wall that I sometimes cannot even force myself to do it.

Hair dyeing. Now there's something I need to bribe myself to do! Love when it's done, just hate actually doing it. Dark brown/cranberry mix which comes off as a deep cranberry/purple-ish look. Heheh.

Soooo hear you on the cold, morethingswrong! I loathe taking warmed layers off, turn on the wall heater, and after toweling off? Use the blow dryer. To really dry off and warm up. Yes, really!

Morethingswrong- can you go somewhere else to shower? Not sure where you live but some places have public places for showers. the YMCA? a friends house? (i could see not wanting to ask a friend though) 42 degrees is too cold!! its not even safe for computers to go below 50, let alone humans!! I have my heat on 55 and it makes a huge difference.

I agree when you are depressed it can be so hard to take care of yourself the way you should. It's hard just for me to get out of bed. Today I worked out for the first time in years. Only a half hour and nothing heavy but I feel really good. I ate a normal meal (no binging and no purging) and I washed the dishes for the first time in a week. Now I am going to take a shower, brush my teeth and maybe even vacuum! Might be a sign of mania coming but I feel good just doing some things for once

there were times I took what is know as "Russian shower" (using more deodorant instead of taking shower. As racist as it sounds, I used this mainly when travelling Eastern Europe... and there are places over there with water shortages. And most Easties laugh at the word).



Dunno, I love showers. I guess, because I experienced water shortages as child (was born to village where we had a well which did not always had enough water) and later on my travels. Add to it nice shower products (I rather give up meals than my shower gels), it gives me the feeling of much needed decandence. Plus living in dorm, shower is good place to cry in.
