I've read many threads where people have said they hide how they are feeling from their friends and family. Just realised I'm doing the same thing. My best friend popped up on Google talk and I immediately exited it. Thought about why I'd done this and I realised it's so much easier to talk to people here because they're in the same state of mind, place etc. I didn't feel I could really open up to her like I can on here, partly so she doesn't worry but also because I don't really think she can understand. Maybe we should stop beating ourselves up about our inabilitiy to talk to our nearest and dearest. We're all doing it guys and that's ok.
