Can generally HAPPY people have DEPRESSION (or any other mental illness causing them to hide their real emotions)?
Watching a bit from Robin Williams made me think of this question. I know that depression itself didn't contribute to his suicide, but it's still a good talking point.

I feel like my whole life was lived wearing a mask. I suffer from mental disorder that makes me lose control over my emotions. When I'm around other people I tend to basically put up an act and try to be happy. I try to help others feel better when they're having a bad day, like when my mother has had a rough day I'd show her a funny video I found or tell her a funny joke, but when I'm alone in my room I sometime cry and beat myself up. I just don't want others to feel depressed and/or angry because I know how much it sucks. Another reason I hide these emotions is because when I was a kid my mother would yell and berate me if I'm having negative emotions, and she still do this, so I usually feel like I'm not allowed to be sad or angry. I'm still learning how to be in tune with my real emotions.
