AT work i usually just keep to myself, nobody there knows all the fears and worries i have going through my head.

Yes from lots of family members they just don't understand or treat me like I can't take care of myself or my kids.

 If I'm feeling depressed around the children at church, I hide it.  Other that that, I don't bother hiding it anymore.

I do hide it a lot.  There are only a handful of people that I've told about it (that includes family and friends; can be counted on one hand) and sometimes I even try to hide it from them ... it's harder to hide things from them though; or maybe it's just that it's easier to fall apart with them now that they already know

no, its always been hard for me to hide it, it usually comes exploding out in anger if i try to hide any emotions.

 I couldn't hide it at work anymore because of the panic attacks, so a few select people at work know what's going on now. My family doesn't know anything, though.
