Never Let Them See You Cry

Photo taken by Red, from Just a thought, in Texas. Red has been Diagnosed with PTSD, Clinical Depression, anxiety and panic disorders, and also has sons with mental health issues. She fights to battle from both sides of the coin, as a consumer and as a advocate for her sons.
About this photo: I took this photo to use online, it wasn’t until later that I realized there was a tear there as well. Taking photos of myself is a trigger for me and I guess even this innocent photo proves I still have work to do.
