Paying good $ for skin cancer.

To be slightly tanner than my albino skin will allow, I went tanning every day for three months to get tan for my wedding. I was not going to go stand by my man in a white wedding dress and blend right in with it. I could not believe how tan I was. But then I would stand next to Diego and it did not look like I had been in the sun in months.
I know that its ok to be white. I mean twilight practically made it cool to be white. But I have learned over my long lifetime that the worst thing that can happen at the begining of a vacation is a BAD burn! After that you dont want to even go out in the sun so you hang out in the hotel room for a couple days taking baths in vinager and rubbing aloe all over your skin. I knew that Uruguay was going to be sunny sunny sunny so I decided to start my tanning early.
I did not start going till about three weeks ago. I did not know if I had given myself enough time because I only go into the bed for 5 or 6 minutes. I went for the first to days and saw nothing. On the 3rd day I decided to go for 8 minutes. BAD F ING IDEA! I got such a bad burn on my legs I could not even move. My legs were having spasms. I tried everything. Nothing worked. I could not get my body heat down. Sat in cold water for over an hour. I did not fall asleep until 4:30 in the morning. I woke up at 7 to go to work and I was dying!! It hurt to put on jeans and walk around! All day I drank freezing cold water just to keep my heat to a minimum! Hell!
So I went back down to 5 minutes a couple days later and havent had a burn since! Two days ago I used the highest bed they have! A bronzing bed. LOVED IT!!!! I dont know why I could not start with it! No burns just amazing brown skin! Cant wait to show pictures of my lovely brown skin!!!!

6 Days!
