People do not want to associate with you because you are experiencing negative emotions such as fear and worthlessness.
People isolate you because you have loss of interest in the things that were once common to your life.
People are not educated to intervene in a person's experience of depression and therefore avoid the person.
People are scared if they say something out of place to the person suffering depression, they may harm others, themselves or suicide.
Has anyone else had some of these common factors contribute to what feels like bias against a self being as well as they can be. Sometimes I think I’m doing real well and the actions of others just strips any integrity I have with my situation. #happierdays

Yes I find that people are less likely to look at you or talk to you if you have exacerbations of the illness. If i am uncomfortable or look weird it can have negative effects.
The first one is big as i think people can pick up on the emotions of fear and isolation. It was interesting to read this and start you thinking.
I wonder about people that are less likely to associate with you due to these things.
