I tend to ignore the question of mental illness and the only time I had to admit to depression was for my pre-work physical(all of this kept confidential as the simply state you either pass the physical or you don't. I passed. The Doctor who was giving me the physical said I didn't even look depressed. I only admit depression to those who are close enough to me that I can trust.

Today I had a little hard time at work, because I forgot my Lorazepam and had to go home to get it. Inside of me I just wanted to share with someone how panicked I was at the time, then I realized nobody knows about my Major Depression and OCD and anxiety--so I just asked for an early lunch to go home and get my meds. I think it is a tough question that all of us deal with. It has been unfortunately stigmatized not only by society, but also by very profession which treats it. Take care.
