Does anyone else feel like a shower completely drains you when you are suffering from anxiety? It is the strangest thing to me.

     Yes I have had that feeling. Do you have naturally low blood pressure? My daughter does and she gets really fatigued in the shower because what happens is the warm water dilates the blood vessels which further lowers the blood pressure    So she can even get a little dizzy  at times.

    Sometimes a hot shower or bath seems to tire us out, try reducing the heat of the water and if you are disabled you can get seating for a shower cubical, the same for a bath. You could have words with the GP to arrange for an Occupational Therapist to visit, they will look at your bathroon and suggest changes, this service is generally for a Disabled Person. I have just completed my bathroom for my disability and they gave advice and fitter various bits of disability aids.

    Everything seems draining when anxiety is cycling. Time slows down and its just a weird existence till it calm down and stops.its hard to laugh or find things enjoyable, not depression its because of the anxiety going on. Hard to explain. But it feels like i am existing not like when you feel normal and do stuff and enjoy the day

    My heart races sometimes when I get out of the shower, like I have been excercising so that makes me so anxious.
