I'm sure a lot of people who spend any time on the internet will remember the
Tan Mom Fiasco
, and all of the internet outrage it
Well, if you like being outraged about the stupidity that poor self esteem can cause in some humans, here's a story for you!
Chantelle Tolson initially began tanning as an eczema treatment, saying it was the inly thing that lessened her symptoms. Fair enough. Personally, I
would recommend just going out in the sun, but some people are busy. Eventually, Tolson became addicted to the browness, and was tanning every other
day for 12 minutes! She then became pregnant and quit the beds.
Post baby, Chantelle just felt so pale that she couldn't stand it; but, who has time to tan with a newborn! This is when she began injecting herself
with Melanotan 2. She swears she "watched Youtube videos" on how to safely inject herself, but she soon became sick... and slightly disgusting.
I'll let everyone read the
, but beware, there are some graphic images.
Everyone does stupid things in their lives, but going through all of this for a tan! I can't even imagine after suffering from horrible wounds at the
injection site of a self administered elective injection, that you would ever start again.
Excuse the manic pace of this article, as I'm at work and slipping this in between business.
