I don't mind talking about
it and am not embarassed to do so, but sometimes I just want to say 'I'm ok' (where alot of the time I am genuinely ok compared to how I am other days) and then not say anymore. Especially at somewhere like work where I work for a big company and news gets passed around pretty quickly...so alot of people know I'm not well and are concerned. And I end up repeating myself several times about
how I am...you get kind of sick of doing it!
