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?
  • 2
    How much are you sad during a day?
  • 3
    Have your family commented on your changing moods?
  • 4
    Have you noticed a change in your eating habits or a weight change?
  • 5
    Are you having trouble sleeping?
  • 6
    Do you frequently feel helpless, hopeless and loathing of yourself?
  • 7
    Is your temper quicker than normal?
  • 8
    Do you feel literally tired of life?
  • 9
    Have you ever tried any form of self harm such as cutting, starving yourself or trying to self destruct in another way?
  • 10
    Finally, what do you think you are?

Numb that’s all I feel. My family has money a big house nice cars. But no one now that i just l Lie awake at night wanting to die. Every one thinks just because I have money I am happy but the reality is I sit in my bath for two hours with my knees to my chest deciding if I should send my pain and how I should end it. I already cut and starve my self everyone at school says I do it for attention in reality I do it because I loath my self. Well everyone in class thinks about what they want to eat for dinner I am planning how to end my life. I already ended up in the hospital once from an attempt over dose. My parents even got me a sevice dog for so if I try anything she presses a button that my parents made me get so I would notify the police. Everyone tells me your getting better but those smiles they see are fake. Am so broken you can’t fix me.

The test said that I was just low and that I probably had just gone through a traumatic event. The thing is, nothing that I can think of could be making me sad. I just suddenly started feeling like life was worthless and that nothing mattered. I don't feel bad about how I look except for a little bit of stomach fat but, I don't think I'm ugly or worthless, I just feel empty.

I dont know if i am depressed,I feel unwanted and used the rounded end to a pencil to burn and make my skin sore and watery but I didn't want to cut It bled though...Sometimes i cry for no reason because my "friends" at least only 2 want to listen,my mum hasn't told me she loved me for possibly a year or so.I can't remember if she ever has.She just tells me to get out the house and go live somewhere else.
I'm not suicidal but I have tried starving myself and i do hate myself.In just wish I had someone to talk to,someone to accept me.

Do you ever feel like everyone’s against you?
And that no matter what you do they all hate you?
And you begin to make yourself feel bad and hurt yourself
But not cut. More like punch until it’s numb?

Is this depression?

I like how you can say anything you want and let it out and let people read your story it makes me know that I’m not alone and know somebody understands me.

it's really weird for me
some days i feel like i just want it all to end and some days i love my life. most of the time I just tell myself to buck up and it can only get better. that helps a lot.

i know a lot of people have it much worse than me so good luck to all of you! Remember that Jesus loves you no matter what and you're here for a reason.

every day i come closer to the light in the tunnel, i wish i had a torch to make the light bigger so it would be easier to kill myself.
if i had less than what i have now, id be Ethiopian or gay.

I’m not sure how I feel but everyday when I come home i would cry and have self hate thoughts and most of the time but also sometimes ill think suicidal and then cry for 2-3 hours or more. i know that i don’t take interest in food much unless I’m really hungry, I don’t want to interact w anyone/ I can tell that I’m starting to show my temper out more, and I don’t really find any joy in things I used to do before, all I want to do is sleep and I’m tired. But idk because it’s been going on for 4 weeks. I’m not sure what to think because I’m the type to just do than to think, I’m not suicidal enough to kill myself or hurt myself. My hygiene is bad and I’m really lonely

Oh, and I forgot to add that my cousin, who is like a sister to me, is in the hospital with an inflamed brain. We don't know what it is that is making it inflamed. Once she's better again, she's going to have to relearn a bunch of stuff that was ruined by this, and we don't know if she'll ever be the same again. I've been stressed about her for a few weeks now, and I think I'm just starting to break from the stress, sadness, and jealousy (or whatever you want to call it).

I'm not depressed. I'm just really sad. I recently lost a woman who was like a mother to me to cancer, and my sister keeps getting girlfriends and boyfriends (yes, she is bisexual) and only telling me about them after the relationships are over. In fact, she doesn't even tell me. I find out because she talks to her friends about them, and I overhear. I guess you could say that I'm jealous of her. I literally have two friends. One of them seems to like hanging out with anyone except me, and the other one lives in Michigan, and I've never actually met her. I've barely been eating lately, and I have been struggling to sleep. I don't know what's wrong with me. Can sadness do this to you?

I'm so done. I'm only twelve and have tried to kill myself three times already, and cut my wrists multiple times a day. Honestly just want to die. Recently started starving, and haven't eaten anything in a few days, but when people ask, I put on a fake smile and say that I'm fine. I hate life

my life is a complete mess. idk what im doing. im only 14. i constantly get false hope from people whom i love and care about. none of my crushes ever liked me back. people constantly backstab me. i have an eating dissorder and i suffer from serious depression. my parens dont care about me and they dont give me proper food. i do well in my exams. but i never get rewarded with anything from my parents. in fact they dont care at all. i dont have any family support. they care about my other siblings more. they get more attention. i dont get any. i never get new clothes. they are all passed on. i find it very hard to sleep at night cus i constantly cry myself to sleep. sometimes i think about this in school and just cry. why am i like this. i just wanna die. bye you'll have a nice day :)
