    I could not take a shower if it were not for my shower chair.

    I checked out about every site on the internet who had one before I ordered .. and ordered a heavy-duty one, without a back, for about $30, with free shipping!

    Hugs,

    I too have a shower chair, but, it's not traditional.

    I knew I needed a back on my chair for comfort and rest. And real shower chairs are expensive.

    So, I bought one of those plastic, white lawn chairs without arms. Voila' Has been working for over 2 years now and all for a measly $5.

    Glenda;

    I have one also. I was getting a little stumbly when showering and one of the ladies here suggested it.
    So, I got one and things go much better.
