Who is this?  And why did they take a picture of this?  I’ve seen bruises like this before.  My mom had them when she was in the hospital in June.  This kind of bruising generally means that there is something seriously wrong.  It’s called ecchymosis.

The person could be injured.  They could be sick.  It can be caused by having too low of a platelet count.  They could have a clotting/bleeding disorder.  It could be from medications. It could be Gardner-Diamond syndrome.  It could be psychological.

So, I don’t get why this would be something people would like or would continue to reblog.
