    I don't know about you guys, but when I get a sunburn now, it hurts 10 times more than pre-Fibro. Since I am light complected and have light hair, I found that top of the head sunburns are the worst. I figured out that if I put a little of that SPF 15 powdered mineral makeup in my hair part that it works like magic. I used to try to put lotion in my hair and that was really nasty looking.

    I know a hat would work also but I get too hot when I wear a hat.

    Happy 4th.

    Hi CjCookie!

    Yes everything hurts more now with FM - the brain seems to have lost its ability to regulate pain transmission - in my opinion...

    Thanks for sharing - what a great idea - spf 15 mineral makeup on my part...very smart of you!

    Have a Happy 4th!

    God Bless,

    Bumping this up to remind everyone to use sunscreen this summer. Saw a family member deal with Stage 3 melanoma probably due to sun exposure over the years. (He kicked it big time!)

    Use something with an SPF of 30 or more and one that is listed as "broad spectrum".

    Also, protect those eyes! Sun can damage our peepers too!

    Happy 4th - Be Safe!
