Okay, I'm not an expert, so you don't have to take me seriously, but if you're not sure whether you're depressed or not then this is the quiz you should take.

  • 1
    When did you first become aware that you were feeling lower than normal, more than normal?
    Not that long, maybe a month or two
    I've been like this for a very long time now. So long I can't even remember when it started
    I'm not really feeling lower than normal more than normal
    Quite a few months ago
  • 2
    How much are you sad during a day?
    I'm sad for maybe an hour or two if you add it up
    Most of the day I experience sad feelings
    Every single second of the day I'm miserable
    Not much, maybe a few minutes if my mind strays to something sad
  • 3
    Have your family commented on your changing moods?
    Once or twice
    A few times recently
    Yeah, they have. They mention it all the time
    Not recently
  • 4
    Have you noticed a change in your eating habits or a weight change?
    My appetite has changed a little bit, but I haven't noticed a weight change
    No, my eating habits and weight are as normal
    Yes to both. My eating habits have changed and I've lost/gained some weight
    Both have changed a little bit, but not drastically
  • 5
    Are you having trouble sleeping?
    Some nights I can't sleep, but they're infrequent
    No, not right now
    Yes, I find it a lot harder to get to sleep these days
    Very much. I toss and turn all night sometimes
  • 6
    Do you frequently feel helpless, hopeless and loathing of yourself?
    No, not frequently
    Yes, quite a lot. I feel like my situation can't be helped and sometimes I dread looking at my face in the mirror
    Recently I've been feeling helpless and hopeless, but no more hating of myself than normal
    Definitely. Right now my life's not going right at all and I really hate myself
  • 7
    Is your temper quicker than normal?
    Not at all
    Yes, I'm feeling angry and I'm more argumentative than usual
    Yes. I get angry a lot quicker and I have little to no patience
    Not too much, just a little sometimes
  • 8
    Do you feel literally tired of life?
    Yes. To be honest, I just want to die
    Sometimes I do, especially when I've had a really bad day
    Only if absolutely nothing has gone right for me that day do I feel tired of life
    Yes, I do. I just wish people would stop making life difficult for me
  • 9
    Have you ever tried any form of self harm such as cutting, starving yourself or trying to self destruct in another way?
    I've only tried one
    I've tried a few things, yes
    I've never tried any form of self harm and I don't plan to
    I'm pretty sure I've tried everything in the world that hurts me now
  • 10
    Finally, what do you think you are?
    To be honest, I don't think I'm sad at all
    Clinically depressed
    I think I'm just a little bit sad at the moment
    I think I'm on the road to becoming clinically depressed

I am hanging of the edge to suicide. I hate my life!. And I have nothing else to live for.
I get bullied, People have say things like "You must be the uglyest girl in the world" and "You look exactly like a peace of s**t" And it really hurts ;_;
My Mom and Dad aren't with each other anymore.
I'm home schooled, And so alone.
I self-harm, And I cut everyday, because I don't give a frenkin' care about my body anymore. I think the only reason I'm still here is, because of my Mom and Sibling. If I didn't have them I'd be where I belong; rotting in my grave ...I'm just a 11 year old girl, and I'm already sick of living :(

Since yesterday I've been feeling pretty down. I don't want to kill myself or anything, just... Lately I had the biggest crush on a guy I have ever had. He liked me back a little bit and then I found out he likes my BFF more. But my BFF wants me and this guy to get together and I'm pretty sure he's on his way to depression... I want to help him but I'm not sure how.

Don't commit a suicide .
I don't know you , but I know that you're worth living .
I tried to do it once , and I feel like idk....
I hate my life , and it sucks , really
It's a hundred times worse than yours , trust me ...
I really feel like I don't belong to die , I feel like there isn't hope for me
And however you feel don't do it
God will take it once ....
But it's not up to you to do it
Cause God maybe has a good life ,full of love and hapiness for you ...
It just needs time ...

I used to be so happy.. I loved a girl who made my life better... Until she had to move away.. Far away. Now, im hopeless and i don't have anyone left to TRULY love. I dont know if ill find another girl to save me from this hell... I dont know anymore, but i know it could be even worse. Because i know someone else, near my age tried to commit suicide.. I feel horrible for her.. But i feel horrible already. Do i still feel emotions? I don't know anymore.. I just dont want to commit suicide because im afraid the one i loved will come back. I just want help. I want someone to at least care for again. Please.

How about you get molested by your uncle and instead of protecting you...your family protects him and blames you. I grew up as the bad person. Oh well. At least I don't go to family parties since they still invite him.

My friends have all left me for the girls who now bully me
My parents don't understand me
They call me stupid and put me down all the time
I always get the urge to smash something up but I don't cause I know I'll get in trouble
Home work is killing me
There's so much to do and so little time to do it
i have sports every day after school and the weekends aswell
It's stress
I don't want to quit sports cause they are the only thing that makes my life worth living and I can take my anger out on things but at the same time I can't handle the people on my team
They all put me down and ignore
Once we were doing face pick for football and everyone got picked but me so I had to be picked but everyone turned around and started doing team strategy
Even the manager ignores me
I'm not allowed to take corners
I'm not allowed to do anything which sucks cause im a really good player
Please anyone help me I'm on the brink of madness
I've thought so many times about running away but I can't bring myself to do it

I'm never hungry and I got to sleep having nothing to eat all day
And I don't know what's wrong with me
I get angry really easy and I'm impatient
Little things trigger my anger or my sadness yet other times I'm completely emotionless
I'm not diagnosed with depression yet I've taken to many online tests that say I'm severely depressed
I would never self harm or suicide cause I'm scared to do it but I contemplate
Life is so messed up for me now and lots of things have changed I just wish everyone would dissapear
I just want everyone to leave me alone

Since the beginning of this year I´ve been feeling sad and depressed. I used to go with some friends to the cinema but we are starting to have conflicts every time we plan an arrengemente. These events really cheered me up. On the other hand, at school, I have classmates that are quite impolite. We are always entering into new problems as a group. Also, this was much worse last year, but we used to have fun by breaking things and being destructive, yet last days were pretty calm and bored. At home, my family is really impatient with me. I am a teenager and I expect to have my privacy but I have to share my room with my little brother and I´m suffering every night and day because of this. My brother is always bothering me. I just want my own room, like I used to have. My family doesnt understand me, and they always justify the arguments of my stupid brother. I enter into a process of anger and craziness... Thats why my parents are always a piece of [BEEP] with me. I cant stand it anymore... I just want to get out of this house and have my own life, but I don´t know if I will make it alive.

Lately I have been very sad about my experiences at school. At the beginning of this year I was very determined to get straight A's. I failed miserably, now I have mostly C's, one D and one F. It all started when I got behind in my science class, then when I was catching up on the work I got behind on another class and so on. I started failing tests and not doing homework. Now I dread each coming school day and I completely hate myself. I have started crying much more often, as well as scratching myself with an Excacto knife, I usually don't break the skin because I get scared. I feel like I have to hide my grades from my friends which is hard because many people at my school like to show their grades to others and compare grades. My friends will sometimes ask me what my grades are and I will lie and say I have mostly A's, then I will try to change the subject. My parents know about my grades and sadness, but they don't know about the cutting and how sad I really am. I know this does not seem like a huge problem compared to other people's problems, but for me since I have never felt this way before its really concerning to me. Thanks for reading.
