    I know what you mean. Sometimes I can talk about it and other times I just want to pretend that I'm normal and nothing's wrong. I think it's because of the way I was raised. My mom's attitude was always "snap out of it and stop feeling sorry for yourself". She's different now, but there's always that feeling that I shouldn't talk about it. And talking about it can have consequences. Friends decide you're too gloomy and they don't want to hang out with you. I've never been to a therapist but I can't really imagine talking about my depression for 40 minutes a week. I mean, I'm convinced that my depression (I don't know about yours) is purely chemical and not related to anything I can talk out.

    I know exactly what you mean about being raised with a mother like that my moms the same way sometimes i hate it because it would help just to talk to her but instead i have to fake a smile around her we never had a close bond and this doesnt help.
    as for the depression i think mine is triggered chemically but also by my past i have grown up knowing too much for my own good messed up relationships and just a bunch of craziness. so talking for 40 mins a week makes it worse because i just want to forget .. this website helps alot tho speaking ur mind and letting it out.
