About this photo: “Under the eye of the Emergency Room light, being examined, probed, prodded with questions of my psychological condition, when I came in by ambulance because of my inability to breathe. I was instructed to go. It was not by choice. And not by choice they hospitalized me on a Psych Unit three hours away. Why? Because, under the ER Eye, I am noted as depressed, anxious and having PTSD. That is ALL that they see…they do not see me.”
