Do you pretend you are not depressed?
 
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.

I try to wear a strong front and act like everything is good and just smile. But some days it just gets so hard to keep up the act when really i just want to break down and cry.

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 :o

I pretend I am o.k most of the time especially during the winter months. That is when it is worse for me. Especially the last few weeks, been dealing with a situation and it has me really depressed.

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.
