Recently, I was having a conversation with another blogger and I had mentioned how my RA was acting up and that I was dreading going to stand in the shower. That when the words “You need a Butt Bench” came across my Facebook chat. Now I admit, my first response was “noooo, not quite there yet.” She then went onto inform me exactly what a Butt Bench is.
Butt Bench is a wood bench that sits across the top of your tub and is made from high quality natural wood. It works so great because the tub is what supports your weight! It attaches to the shower wall with suction cups. There’s no chance of damaging your shower interior! The suction cups are thick and strong too so no fighting with them to get them to stay!
While the bench is great for seniors (or people like myself with RA), it’s also great for kids and healthy adults too! Use it to store your toiletry items (like shown), use it to keep the kids’ toy’s up off of the bottom of the tub (like shown), use it to sit down and shave your legs…there are so many situations where it could be used!
Last week, my Tom had a bout with strep throat and a bad sinus infection all at once (poor guy). One of the things that helped relieve some of his symptoms was sitting in the tub, shower running as hot as he could, soaking up the steam. The Butt Bench made it possible for him to do this without having to sit down in the tub. Because he didn’t have to sit down in the tub itself and was able to sit up out of the water on the Butt Bench, he was able to run the water hotter, providing more steam for him to breathe in.
So what do *I* think about the Butt Bench? I love it! Today, my RA took hold of my body in a way that it hasn’t in years. (Read my post about it HERE). While I did have to have help getting into the tub, the Butt Bench saved me from having to work my way in and out of the tub. I was able to sit above the tub, on the bench, and bathe like I normally would. Because of that bench.
On days when my RA isn’t bothering me, it’s still great! I’m genuinely in love with the product!
