    Peter felt awful at work

    I am wondering if my sentence make sense in English. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    Peter felt terrible at work but hid behind the mask of cheerfulness to avoid any discussion about the state of his mind

    Re: Peter felt awful at work

    I'd say 'a mask' and end the sentence with a punctuation mark.

    Re: Peter felt awful at work

    I'd end with "his state of mind."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
