When I claim sickness simply to have a day off, the next day that I go in, I'm told I don't look good. When I went to see my therapist after 2 weeks had passed and all these great things had happened, she tells me I look so happy. This was two days after the claimed sickness.

So which is it? Am I transparent, or do people just see what they want to see? And am I really happy, or just really good at faking it?

I think unless they really try to look harder (and it's not just an issue of caring, but also of knowing, and of not being afraid to impose), people see what you tell them to see. This is the inherent danger of faking it. Haven't we all pretended to be happy at some point, and wondered what the hell is wrong with people that they can't see the truth?

I bet you look happy. You seem happier. it's what I would want to see.
