Your hair does thin some but mine started curling. I look like I have a perm now.
I've never been sick from it. I get my eyes checked regularly and there's no sign of damage. It's rare for that to happen.
There are places you can buy clothing with sunscreen built in. I love the clothing they sell at coolibar.com. they're expensive but worth it. I wear their long sleeve tees and hats with jeans. It gives me time to get outside for errands. You can also buy sun-brellas there too.
As for weight gain I've actually lost 50 pounds over the last year just by diet alone.
Lupus, RA, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, Depression, Allergies, diabetes, and benign familia tremors
When life throws you lemons....
