We all hide it one way or another. Its natural for us to try to not show it. Its very hard though. I have hid mine for a long while now. My fake smile works wonders on people...no one ever notices that its not real. They only see the outside smile, not the inside pain.
I think that your husband would try to understand. Someone sad he might think you dont care for him or that your mad. Just try talking to you. Most likely he wants you to be happy and he will try to help you. Depression requires support from others. Its important to have people who care, but they have to know the truth first. Thats a first step to recovery, admit you have a problem. You can go from there. Hiding is horrible and we shouldnt have to do it......the thing is, we dont. You are not an alien, you just have medical problems, thats normal. Its easier to hide than to have to tell people how you feel....but talking about
it is WAY better than staying isolated...I think you will feel better if you talk about
it rather than hide...
Its your call. But, I wish you the best of luck, remember that you are a strong individual and that you will get through this no matter what. Best Wishes
Lyrica(14 months) and Paxil(about 6+- months)-both helping some, but would like to see better results
