I'm pretty sure I had pneumonia when I was in Greece. I don't think I'd been that sick since I had mono. It was awful but I didn't want to go to the doctor. Stupid me. About a week after I left Greece and was feeling a bit better I started coughing up neon green stuff (TMI, I know!)
I had horrid sun poisoning when I was in my early 20's, when I went to Cape Cod. Thankfully, it was at the very end of the trip. BUT, it made for an AWFUL car ride home (which was 5 hours) because I was throwing up the whole way home. That was one of the worst experiences I've ever had, I was so so so ill.
I wasn't stupid, either. I wore sunscreen.. it wasn't like I spent all day in the sun without it, I even re-applied when I was supposed to. I guess it was just too long in the sun (it was maybe 8 hours).. I have sensitive skin. I will never, EVER spend more than 5 hours on a beach again.

Now that I think about it, back when I was in 8th grade and on vacation with my biological father, his wife and her son, I got sunburned REALLY bad. It was painful to shower, and even to wear a shirt. I spent a lot of time in the hotel room, which was fine since I didn't get along with my ex-stepmom.

Oh Erika, that sounds horrible. I have to be careful how much time I spend in the sun too, my skin is SO pale. I had mine in the middle of the holiday so at least I could lie in bed in the apartment feeling sorry for myself and getting better. I was better by the time I flew home.
