We've been together just over 6 months, I love him and he loves me. He knows I have depression as I told him about it early on, I also told him about my childhood (sexual abuse by grandfather) and he was really understanding about it. Recently my moods have been getting low and I've been trying to hide it from him. I put on that happy mask we all know so well. He's such a positive and happy person that I don't want to bog him down with my feeling. I only see him at weekends so he doesn't see my bad days and when he texts I say I am good when really I am not. How do I tell him I feel horrible inside and I just want to curl up in a ball and sleep until this feeling goes away.
