My depression is becoming really obvious in my social life, and its getting harder and harder to hide it. Although I have a few great friends who would understand me I'm really afraid about people knowing I'm depressed. I'm constantly cracking horrible jokes and faking smiles to look happier, but people constantly asking me where I'm going when i go to school counciling or times where I'm not feeling confident enough to join in conversation are standing out more than ever. Sometimes i even feel ashamed about being depressed, thinking everyone will see me as weak or as someone they would rather not spend their time around. Should i be more honest about how i feel instead of trying to hide it?
