Weird Skin

I burn easily. I know, I know, given my race the sun shouldn't effect me like that... but it does! My skin is weird. I burn so badly, within seconds, so I tend to avoid the sun. So, I've never been to the beach in my life. And... if I must go out in the daytime (which I do), I try to stay in shady areas of the car, bus, train, or street. One of the reasons why my name is Shadow here... I''m always hiding in the shadows. ;-)

I'm the same way. I'm very pale. I'll burn in 20 minutes easy. If I spend too much time in the sun I start feeling sick. It just sucks the life out of me. I always slather myself in sunscreen and avoid the sun as much as possible.

Obviously not a 'Daywalker' lol.<br />
I can burn easy although I don't think it compares to what you'd go though. Do you think you miss much though your condition?

*hands Shadow and Sofi some umbrellas* Stay out of the sun you two! Can't have two burned people walking around =P

but i get burnt very easily, coz im pale :P .. so often.. I look pink like a pig. :P

I like sun, but I don't like extreme heat (for me it means more than 30°C (86F)

Sounds like a medical condition to me. I can't remember what it's called, but a Dermatologist could tell you. You should make an appointment with a good, reputable one in your area to see what can be done. You might be missing out on things you don't have to.<br />
Also, I have a condition that can be made worse by the sun, but if I wear SPF50 or more sunscreen I can be outdoors for a couple of hours without any harm. Have you tried that? I hope you get things fixed. No one should have to live their life in the shadows. *hugs*
