So last year I was depressed and this year I'm transitioning into anxiety (I know, lucky me) and recently I've actually been feeling pretty good I was never terrible (my heart goes out to some of the stories I'm seeing on here) but it still sucked.
Anyway, I feel better and I thought I did a decent job of not letting everyone around me know what was going on, except people I wanted to tell. I'm a private person, I don't want the world to know. But I just asked my friend if he wanted to meet up, simply because I hadn't seen him in a while and wanted to have a normal friendly catchup. And he asked me if I was OK. And another example - I've been chatting to someone for a few weeks, never met them before, and they said they could tell I had some things going on.
Like, am I just an open book to people?? I've even been feeling pretty good the past few months. And then this, it just makes me feel really confused and more socially anxious and it feels like I've had my privacy stripped away, which feels horrible.
Have any of you lovely people encountered anything like this before? Do you have any tips? I just want special people to know, not everyone.
