I have been doing some writing on my website about hidden depression. Those folks who always look really smiling and happy but inwardly are experiencing quite a bit of sadness. I just wondered if anyone in this group might have experienced that, either now or in the past. The response to the posts themselves have been really quite amazing. If you want to take a look at one of them, it's http://drmargaretrutherford.com/the-perfectly-hidden-depressed-person-are-you-one. That would give you an idea of what I am talking about. Would love to get this group's perspective! Thanks so much!
