When you ask someone 'how are you doing', do you want them to tell you the truth (even if unpleasant)?

Yeah, I actually want them to tell me the truth. If it was an unpleasant answer, I really don't expect them to open up and explain me their situation with that simple question of "how are you doing?" It would be strange if I asked a person "how are you doing" as I'm passing by, and they say, "well, I drank, and took cocaine while I was pregnant, I took part of a hit and run, and now I'm getting a divorce."
I mean, I would like them to tell me the truth depending on the person( like a close friend, or family member), but like I said, I doubt the truth will just come out with that simple question.1
