If i were a patient of clinical depression, why would i want to keep it a secret?
No, i don't care about the stigma of the disease.
I just wouldn't want people to ask, "Why are you depressed?"
Because it would not be something they would understand. It would not be something they would accept.
It would be something forbidden. They would rather prefer me to be miserable rather than even admit having such thoughts.
If i were a patient...
