Ceclia, you're funny! We have churches on every corner here, and that's not a joke
I just wasn't sure with the accessory what was the best for keeping your ostomy safe. I'm sure the inside of an organ is not necessarily fond of the radiation of the tanning beds.
However, the good feelings one gets from the tanning beds is used in what is called Light Therapy. It's very successful with those who have Seasonal Affective Disorder...Cecilia you would know nothing of the sort since you're in a beautifully sunny state. It's very common in Alaska (from what I know) and in other states when there are long winters. Missouri gets the best of all seasons and there are many people walking around here with beautiful tans because sometimes the cold just lasts a little too long.
As for the spray tan, my sister owns a salon, and they offer that, and I know many people who really like it. But I don't think it lasts as long as a tanning bed tan, and I too feel that the tanning bed brings a positive feelings afterward. I would really like to start tanning again in a bed, but I really am scared about doing something bad to my accessory and stoma. Should I try to cover it with something? Maybe a towel?
*sigh* I am just so excited to wear my little tops again and get back down to normal size. I'm about 17lbs away!!! I lost 12-14lbs fairly easily just from getting off my medications...whew!!!
Okay...I'll probably call around to some tanning salons in town and in the town I work in. Some places really try to scam you!!!
