Do you ever pretend like everything is fine? Do you have anyone in your life that makes you feel bad about getting depressed?
I do sometimes not tell dh or others when I am depressed. Sometimes dh will draw conclusions and think that I am feeling down because of him or for some reason other than my bipolar disorder. And I don't want people to think I am constantly depressed so sometimes I just keep it to myself. If things are bad enough though, it's difficult for me to hide.
Right now I'm kinda at an all time low. It is so incredibly hard to be around people because I'm having such a hard time pretending I'm fine. I can't find the words to make conversation... and when I do it just comes out all awkward bc I'm just trying to bull**** a fake happy conversation. Blahhh
I am pretty good at hiding my depression most of the time...most people have no idea that I struggle until I tell them. But I do sometimes just hide at home and withdraw from family and friends so that I don't have to lie and put on the happy face and hide it.
