Ow Ow Dangit Ow!

Okay, so the big buzz in the news has been all about Vitamin D. Now that we're all heeding the sunblock and skin cancer warnings, we're ending up needing more vitamin D since we're not making enough on our own. It's now even being linked to autism in some preliminary studies.

So, a little sun, just a little is supposed to be good right? Well, sure, unless you're me.

I was outside for 30 minutes today and I'm now sporting my first sunburn of the season. It's the one every year that reminds me, "No, sun is not for you, little girl. Now go back inside and stay there." The one where I'm barely outside at all, and I come home with a scorched nose and a burnt chest. Grumble.

I'll find my Vitamin D in other ways and go back to being a little proto-goth girl thankyouverymuch. Stupid sun.

  • Trader Joe's has Vitamin D gel capsules, that are vitamin D and practically nothing else, whereas most pills have a bunch of fillers, binders and other ingredients.

  • for your skin tone, you get a huge dose of vitamin D from 10 minutes of direct sunlight. Someone with very dark skin might need several hours.

    so really, i doubt you're lacking the vit D department.
