When you're depressed, and you mention it to friends, sinking ship syndrome happens when they sort of start avoiding you, quit calling etc. Cuz even rats get off a sinking ship.
I confided in Sally when I told her I was really depressed, now suddenly she's not calling me anymore, doesn't want to hang out. It's the old sinking ship syndrome again.....
