16 Memes That Nail What It's Like Being Sensitive to Light
It seems there are some people who can just soak up endless amounts of sun and never feel any uncomfortable side effects. And then there are others, those who peek outside on a sunny day and say, “Yep… I’m staying in today.” There are many reasons why a person might be sensitive to sunlight or artificial light. People who get migraine attacks or headaches may be triggered or feel worse due to light, while people with lupus may find that they experience flare-ups and skin rashes after sun exposure. Autism can cause light sensitivity, as well as fibromyalgia and Lyme disease. Or you might simply have blue eyes or pale skin, both of which can make being in the sun uncomfortable.
The adverse effects “light sensitive” people experience aren’t funny, but sometimes, laughing at the things you do to try and cope with it can make dealing with the problem a little bit easier. Below, we’ve gathered a few memes that sum up the challenges of feeling like a “vampire” among humans.
