Early on-set Alzheimer’s..at age 25?

Okay so I don’t really have alzheimer’s but sometimes I totally feel like it! I know my forgetfulness happens a lot of times when I am distracted but still sometimes it’s just ridiculous! I either do something and totally don’t remember doing it, or can’t find essential things or just totally space out!

For example, the other day we decided to celebrate the good weather (and the fact that we actually at the beach..well a timeshare by the beach) and go lay out at the pool. Normally I am good at prepping my skin for summer by going tanning so I don’t burn (since I have pasty white skin). However, this year I didn’t and I also didn’t really feel like hurting the whole week so I was really good about putting sunscreen on (or so I thought). It was a good time of laying out by the pool, relaxing reading, and good conversations.

As the night progressed I started to notice that my right arm was starting to hurt and was really hot. Finally I looked in the mirror and this is what I saw…

The right side was defiantly bright red and burnt while the left was still it’s natural pasty white color..what the heck?! I racked my brain to remember if that side had been in the sun more..but no it was actually my left side that had been more in the sun. This totally doesn’t make sense! After a few minutes of being really confused..it hit me…when I was being so good about sun screening my exposed epidermis I had one of my total space out moments and put sunscreen on my left arm twice and totally missed my right! Really?! sometimes I wonder about my own sanity!

What are some of you crazy forgetful moments? Any good sunscreen stories?

  3. Well, I forgot to put sunscreen on in Hawaii and fell asleep on the beach and got such a bad sunburn that I had to take pain meds and couldn't walk for 3 days. Pretty much ruined my vacation. I think I still have skin damage from that burn and it was like 20 years ago! :)

  4. I hate it when that happens! I'm pasty white too, and an uneven burn is so much worse than a plain-old burn, in my opinion. Of course, tans are always preferable, but we can't always win, right? Haha.

    My worst uneven burn happened when my dad took me out on a sailboat, probably in jr. high, and I accidentally left my hand in one spot on my thigh for too long. I was lobster red, except for the big white handprint on my upper thigh...awkward...
