What a horrific thing! So sorry that happened, but like you said, it had a positive result in you never wanting to tan again. I too am "blessed" with fair, super-sensitive skin. I have to be careful for lotions that will cause me to break out all over. I also have a strange thing where I will break out in prickly-heat-type bumps on my arms if I'm in the sun without SPF. It definitely helps to know "how you are" so you can act accordingly, and work to protect your boys from any inherited reactions as well. Thanks for sharing your uncomfortable and scary fainting experience.
