“I work in the education field. I have anxiety and depression but am able to do my job and not let it show when I'm with my students. However I feel like I can't be honest with my coworkers. Everyone seems happy and that's awesome but I just want to be able to make an honest comment without being looked at like I'm crazy. I feel that I should be able to be me in front of my adult peers. Realistically, we aren't all happy all the time. I'm tired of pretending.”
