Your friends are only your friends until you make them privy to your inner tidings. Then they become unaccommodating, cold and distant, but maintain the gutted friendship for the convenience's sake. 

You are now seen as a flickering image of your former self, who was not visibly mentally ill and therefore fit to be a friend. Your dehumanised hologram smiles and beams at the beholder, your friend, and meanwhile the real you frowns with eyes vacant. 

So it happens your friend neglects your emotional health with subtle tact and abandons your true self. Realising this, despair fills the pit of your stomach and you embrace the familiar feeling of descension - into apathy - to escape the emotional pain whose roots lay in past trauma.
