I ♥ Faces Self Portrait

It's self portrait week at I ♥ Faces. I think I got a little intense for mine, but it's been one heck of a week.

I'm not one to get sick. If I do, it's only a little, and only for a day. So when it hit me this time, I was completely unprepared. 5 days, 6 prescription bottles, and one hospital visit later, I'm on the mend. This one is just me. All me. No makeup, no hairdos, no fancy shoes. Me in the raw.

Check out all of the other entries here:

I'm so sorry you have not been well. Having said that though, I also have to tell you how much I hate you for looking so good when feeling bad. If I looked as good as you without makeup, maybe I could be brave like that and post a pic of me non-gussied up : )

Hope you "mend" quickly.

You poor girl. But this is such a creative self-portrait. Those drugs must be doing good things to your brain! Love this. Hope you feel better soon!

I hope you're feeling much better and quickly!!!

Feel better soon!

Sorry to hear you have been sick. Hopefully you're on the mend but that your creative photography keeps up.

Don't even know you and I feel bad for you! I hope you feel better soon; if it makes you feel better, you are beautiful and still take amazing pictures even when you're sick!

Very inventive, despite the ailment and the fact that the drug may cause drowsiness. Obviously your brain was not affected! B&W is perfect for this! Hope you are back to yourself soon!

Way to be a trooper and still enter even though you're sick! Hope you feel better soon.
