I have fought with myself for two days about posting this. I don't really know why....anyway I decided to put it out there anyway and see if any one
else has experienced this.
I have sunbathed all of my life. My skin tans in the summer and I don't have to "lay out", but I do. I have had a pool for most of my life too. I
get "brown as a biscuit" as the saying goes in my neck of the woods.
Over the years of swimming, sunbathing, fishing...whatever it is, I have never ever had a sunburn...I have sat in a boat in the sun from sun up to
sun down before, many times...no sunburn, just a nice dark tan...but this past week...I got in the pool on my raft and just basked and floated for
about an hour and a half... my legs and abdomen later that night were nearly purple and so sore that I couldn't stand it...that was four days ago and
they are still tender, although they have turned from purple to red to a slighly tan color... I did the same thing all last summer and never had this
problem... I truly don't understand what is different this summer!
