Do You Suffer From “Tannorexia?”
I think we have all followed the “tanning Mom” story. It has upset a lot of mothers, tanning salon owners and just about anyone with a central nervous system and a basic sense of moral decency or sanity.
When I first saw the story on national TV I jumped on it and we talked about it on my show “Mornings with Andy” on 100.5 The River. The comments were all negative!
It’s because she, Patricia Krentcil allegedly took her five-year-old daughter to a tanning salon to get a bit of bronzing done.
That didn’t go over too well and she got a second-degree felony charge and the scorn of a nation. The case has raised new awareness of this addictive condition, coined “tannorexia,” and the people who suffer from it.
But the question is, how do you know if YOU have it? We all tan somewhat, some more that others. But, do you really suffer from “tannorexia?”
We thought we’d have some fun, so here is our Top 10 List….. ways to tell if you might be among those afflicted.
1. People keep asking for your autograph because they think you are either John Boehner or C-3PO.

3. All photos taken of you are a photo negative of a photo negative.
4. The sun has to squint its eyes to look at you.
5. You feel as though you could burst into flames at any second — and you’re not driving a Pinto.
