Living with FSHD has caused great difficulty for me in keeping my balance. I’m sure you’ve heard this many times from others who have this condition.
I was about to have my shower converted into a walk-in because I was afraid of falling while showering. But then I found Vertico shower and pool sandals. I purchased them from Amazon, but they are also sold in many other places. I found them to be very helpful for standing in the shower, as they reduce the risk of slipping on water or soap. You still need to be careful, but they do help a great deal with keeping your footing and balance. I hope you find this tip to be useful!
