When rheumatoid arthritis affects the shoulders and neck, reaching up to take off or put on the shower curtain can be excruciating and/or difficult.
Last year, while staying in a hotel, a new joint-friendly idea was revealed. The shower curtain in our hotel room came with snaps, making it easy to remove the lower part - which is striped in the photo - for washing. Plus, if your shower stall is on the dark side, the mesh at the top allows more light to enter.
Here is a link for this brilliant product.
While you're in the shower, remember to work on those arms with this range of motion (ROM) exercise!

I was the girl who was helping you at Bed Bath and Beyond today. I was intrigued when you mentioned your blog, partially because I have lupus, so I thought I would check it out.
To readers of this blog: The author came in to the store today, and we discovered that the product linked in this blog is a shower curtain liner replacement for our Hookless Shower Curtain and Liner set (found in different colours when you search on the website). Unfortunately we do not carry the product described in this entry. I have brought it up to my manager, so hopefully it will be something we carry in the future.
In the meantime, the Hookless Shower Curtain and Liner set is capable of being removed without removing the rod as well, if that helps for anyone. Another option would be to work with someone who could hem the shower curtain up to the mesh part so as to function as what was described in this blog entry.
I hope that helps.
I guess it was no accident that you should help me at Bed, Bath and Beyond!
Thanks for this helpful comment.
