Look Out, Sunshine!

I’ve been sick with stupid allergies and a head cold so most of my week has been spent curled up in front of the t.v. in the cool, dark house. All that time I’ve been so miserable and sad, and I was starting to worry it was related to some adjustments we’re making to my meds (which sends me into panic mode) which really freaked me out!

Until I got to the kids’ school to pick them up from math club. I’m sitting here in the car trying to figure out why I feel so awesome for the first time in days and it occurs to me that DAMN my arm is hot!  Oh yeah, you’re sitting in the sun you dummy… The sunnnnnnnnn!  The sun is why I feel so awesome today!

That’s when I made an important decision.

As soon as we get home I’m going to dig out my bucket of sunscreen and make a date with my poolside lounge chair!

I’d much rather die from skin cancer than depression!


One thought on “Look Out, Sunshine!

  1. especially if you’re on anti-depressants or mood stabilizers, as they increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, would have been useful to know that BEFORE i went to the beach and burned to a crisp instead of AFTER when i’m miserable and googling everything to figure out what’s wrong with me.
