 I normaly don't say anything unless someone picks up on it. Then I tell them. Then they kind of shun away from me.

I just tell them I have depression. They don't seem to care.

I would also explain that I have no control over it.

The few friends that I have are understanding about it. I had to slowly tell them. I am afraid to make new friends because I am afraid I will scare them away.

i try not to tell to many ppl.. but i am a part of a group called "petoskey club" it is an orginazation that gets toghether and supports each other with their disorders.. it basically is a work type group too.. mostly volunteer stuff but some paid work is also availble.. not much thou... their model is "work is rehabalitave"  and it helps to know i am not alone in the fight and sometimes daily struggle...

I don't say anything. I can't think of a reason for anyone to know.
