Self Portrait Tuesday on Thursday

Self Portrait Tuesday

"All of Me"

No masks allowed

No Hiding

Get Real

This is evidence of what I try to hide: Those dark circles which show how tired I am.

Tired of being tired.

Tired of being sick.

Tired of being depressed about being sick.

Tired of pretending to everyone that I'm fine.

Tired of it all.

If I look too closely at myself I see how far I've let myself sink down into the mask of "I am a sick person". When I actually can muster the energy to get out and about I pile on the makeup, especially under the eyes to try and pretend just for a little while that I'm just me, the pre-sick me who could get up and go anywhere anytime.
