Sarah Hyland posted a selfie to her personal Instagram on Thursday in honor of National Selfie Day, but it wasn’t the typical photo you might expect from a young superstar actress.

The “Modern Family” actress, who plays Haley Dunphy, struggles with severe kidney dysplasia, which required her to get a kidney transplant in 2012. (RELATED: ‘Modern Family’ Actress Looks Unrecognizable After Dramatic Weight Loss [PHOTOS])

Sarah Hyland revealed she had been hospitalized on Thursday due to a complication from her condition, and the photo is pretty shocking.

“Sometimes a selfie is more than just a good angle or feelin’ cute. This time for #NationalSelfieDay, I’ve decided to share my truth. As painful as it is,” she captioned her selfie, wearing a hospital gown and face mask. “So here is my face that was torn from work against my will. But I’m very grateful it was. Health should always come first.”

She also mentioned her dog in a separate Instagram story, who she claims was “telling me to get treatment.”
