We talk a good game about mental health, but yeah, it freaks people out or confuses them, so it is easiest to ignore or minimize it. My wife lost friends, good friends she had had for many years, when she had a minor breakdown and ended up not doing a minor thing for them (since she was too busy working out ways and reasons to NOT kill herself to do so.) Years later, after telling them exactly what was going on, the friends still are gone and consider themselves totally justified in it, and mutual friends back them up. And years later, my wife refuses to see a psychologist since "it's fine now." SO, you have great respect from me for being willing to do so, even though you have real reasons to NOT do so in your career.
