You didn't do anything wrong. YOu really didn't. I think
your roomate is being a bit controlling and she might have even
been jealous that she brought friends over and you had something in
common with one of them. I mean "Id rather you not talk about your depression
with my friends". Like you said, her friend is the one that wanted to talk
about it! Plus, who is she to tell you what you can talk about with people? Jeez!
That's a little controlling and uptight and shame inducing if you ask me. Seems like
she's always trying to make you feel shame.

It does sound like having other friends would help a lot. It always makes for
an unbalance of power when you rely on one friend for all your social needs. Getting out
of the house to do other stuff would probably help too.

I'm in Durham if you ever want to get together. Of course I think
I'm quite a bit older than you (I'm 35). But I'm always up for taking a
walk or a hike or something.

Take Care--don't let your roomate get you down. She's certainly
not perfect and has issues all her own.
