Yes, it can be a problem, but I have learned to live with it. My Vit D levels are great, and I do take a supplement. There are others in my family with it also. I have read that it is mostly darker skinned folks who get it. Of course I am the only light skinned, freckled, used to be redhead, in the family! Looks funny since we have a huge slice of Cherokee in us. :sm26: I do stand out at family gatherings!tamarque said:JanetLee--that sun sensitivity is really a sorrow. Hope you get your Vit D levels tested and avail yourself of a good Vit D3 supplement.
Those bears can be tricky. My DIL has bear that walk right by their front door and get into the garbage cans no matter how much they tie the covers down. It is a little disconcerting with a small 5 yr old to watch over. We have city people that hunt on my road and have been known to shoot people's dogs. I used to try and keep my kids in during hunting season and warn them of the racism of a lot of these people who would shoot them out of frustration if they couldn't down a deer. It has been a problem around here diminished only by the development which removed some of the hunting terrain close by. Not happy about that development but it has moved the city hunters a bit further away.
It is not the bears I mind as it is the hunters with no clue. They are the reason I wear the bright orange vest and hat this time of year. :sm06:
