Wow! I have been suffering from severe sun poisoning! Oo I went to a tanning bed on Thursday to try and get a base tan before the cruise to not burn... and the chick didn't tell me that going in for 20 minutes was a bad idea for a first timer... and it's not like she didn't know it was my first time because we chatted for about 5 minutes about different lotions and what I should use for my first time *fumes*

I was severely pissed off to say the least. I talked to the manager/owner today after I got out of work, and she apologized offering my money back/or a free month and some free lotion to use (which is awesome by the way!) Sooo much better than the Vaseline intensive care with aloe I got LOL! I had to work today, but took Monday off to give me a little time to recover since I can barely walk I'm in so much pain *pout*

This is after two days of healing...

Ugh! That's terrible. How irresponsible. They should let that girl go. Hope it's not so bad by the time you go on your cruise! And PLEASE use sunblock on your cruise.

By the way, that is a seriously huge pic. ;)

I just changed the size of the pic after I posted the entry... I guess you saw it right as I posted this LOL!

I was upset that the girl obviously didn't know/care and I got this messed up over it :( But live and learn I gather. The owner did tell me they have only been open a month, and the girls that work there are rather young... she also told me that they had just put new bulbs it the bed I used a week prior to me using it... figures!

Oh good Lord! Girl. A "base tan" isn't going to protect you from sunburn or skin cancer; the only thing that'll protect you from that is sunscreen and/or staying out of the sun. That "base tan" myth is like saying smoking a few cigarettes every day will protect you from lung cancer. I don't know why people think a tan looks healthy. A tan is actually your skin fighting to protect itself and evidence that your DNA is being damaged.

Don't take them up on that free month of grilling yourself. That's one freebie that won't do you any good whatsoever.

I'm sorry you're in pain and I hope you heal quickly. I don't burn in the sun, though I try to limit my exposure. But I've seen some nasty sunburns on Chris and can imagine it hurts like hell. :/

My brain has been fried... it totally ate my whole Friday with coming home from work early to lying in bed until 8PM just to go back to bed by 11:30... I am feeling a little better today, but not as good as I'd like. As for a tan, usually once I tan, I don't burn since my skin is super pale. I do use sunscreen believe me! LOL! I have a big bottle of it, but we bought excursions for the cruise, and I knew we'd be in the sun for hours, so I was trying to prepare...

Interesting about the DNA damage. I didn't know that.

It's been an eyeopener to be sure! At least the owner was accommodating

OMG that looks awful! I'm so sorry that happened to you. :( Burns hurt like a bitch, too. How irritating that you were going there to try and avoid getting a burn, and then ended up getting a burn while trying to take preventative measures!

I hope you're feeling better soon!

Something that might amuse you... my ass is the most burned, so I've been having trouble sitting down, and Jason remarked, I gather now you know how Oswald feels LOL! ;)

I'm doing my best to just relax and health today. I took tomorrow off work too, so hopefully I can still get stuff done ... I need to get to the Midas and get my tire checked because it has a slow leak as well as an oil change before we head out of town.

Dear God, that is WICKED wrong. Seriously, that's like chicken fried. Much love and aloe!

I would convert to Islam and I would wear a burqa from the sun, if need be.

Ouchie indeed you poor thing. Hope you are feeling a bit better now. That girl was down right stupid not taking more care with a first timer.
Take care and take plenty of sunblock on your cruise, you don't want this to happen again. Hugs better.
