My Facebook Happy Face

I live in a different state than my family, so we communicate through facebook and keep up with each other that way. Of course we talk on the phone too, and I let them know what's going on but I never let them know just how bad I'm doing. I've been going through more than a lot lately, and things get pretty gloomy sometimes. But I don't want them worrying about me because there's not much they can do for me.

So I try to just be "me" and seem happy on there. I rarely every post my drama on facebook and try my best to not let my depression show. Ever now and again it seeps out, but I tend to go back and delete it soon after.

No need to worry them when they can't help me.

I'm pretty familiar with that. .. I do the same thing. .. they don't need to know that .. they just need to know I'm ok and happy, the other things I need to take care of it ... but maybe some day will be over ...
