My OT friend told me that when she was working in inpatient she made a deal with her therapist friend that if either of them were ever hospitalized, the other one would shave her legs for her. That’s a good idea. See, I was in the hospital for a month and by the end of that month the hair on my legs, armpits, and eyebrows was absolutely out of control. Not that I gave a shit what the hair on my legs was doing. So I really don’t know if I would have appreciated that at the time. I was pretty out of it and also hated EVERYONE so if you came near me with a razor it may not have ended well. I was also on Coumadin and you have to be really careful about shaving when on Coumadin. So, maybe not a good idea for a devastating, awful, horrible traumatic event like I had but for less traumatic reasons for being in the hospital, I think that’s a good idea.
