look up any word, like turnt:
A depressed person that always tries to pretend that she's not depressed anymore while she still is.

When she pretends so, we call it a "fake shifting".
Tommy: mom, can I stop taking these drugs? I don't need them anymore.

Tommy's Mom: you can't, Tommy, you're depressed and I don't want you to kill yourself.

Tommy: that's okay mom, i'm not depressed anymore. I feel good, now.

Tommy's little brother: he's a liar, mommy! Look at the cut marks on his arms! He's still harming himself!

*Mom looks at the cut marks*

Tommy's Mom: why are you trying to lie, Tommy?

Tommy's little brother: that's because he's a fake shifter!
