That was harsh but your right. This makes everyones feelings of depression worse, not make you feel better.

Wow you guys should go to some actual help. Not some quiz that just rubs everything in. This quiz overall just has a bad, depressing vibe to it. I came on here because I'm bored and now I feel really depressed. Not a good quiz at all

It hurts... It hurts so much and I don't know why, it's horrifying...I used to be the girl everyone wanted to be friends with, everyone gravitated towards me, now I don't even want to be around me

The Pessimistic One (33321)

I feel like life is pointless, like we're all just spending our lives doing nothing. Nobody seems to understand me. I'm extremely pessimistic, depressed and have been for the last three years. But it got worse a few months ago. The urge to kill myself is stronger than anything I've ever felt and living feels like a chore. If I wasn't such a coward, I would have already done it. There's no point to life - no point to my life. I hope that one day I'll just fall asleep and never wake up; that would be the best gift.

I don't know who you are, what you've been through in your life, or why you made this, but I'd like to take a quick moment to thank you for making this. It opened my eyes quite a lot and it's not every day you find quizzes that are actually this serious and detailed on this website on this website. Did you take this quiz yourself? I hope you're doing ok in life. Once again, thank you, you've influenced mine

I don’t know how I feel the way I feel I don’t know why I don’t know who I am. I might be depressed, I might have anxiety or I’m just a person who’s taking their insignificant problems too seriously. I don’t know how to feel anymore. I feel everything or nothing. I cry silently in my room, my hands shake, my stomach growling for food from being starved or feeling upset because I ate too much junk food. I want to be pitied but I don’t feel like I deserve it. I want someone to understand how I feel but I don’t want anyone to have to feel this way. I want to scream and shout and cry but I want to curl up in a hole and be silent for awhile. I want to jump around and do something but I want to do nothing at all. I want to think about happy things and smile but I want to think about all that is wrong in the world, all that is wrong with me. I want to be proud of my accoplishments but I don’t feel like I’m worthy of celebration. What do I do? I don’t know what to do. I don’t know how to live anymore.

I’m so depressed. I can’t sleep, I’m always tired. I eat loads of junk food and am getting overweight. I’ve been having suicidal thoughts. And even more. All of this because of one girl I love. She is straight and will never like me back but I’ve loved her passionately forever, and all the boys like her but no one could truly love her in the way I do. I know we were meant to be soulmates, I just know it. So why can’t she see it??

I just want to give him nightmares and shout abuses at him. I want him gone. I want him to know how much it hurt. If you want to know why, look at the comment below.

I've just found out that my crush was flirting with SENIORS, of all people. Our school Seniors! I hate him for doing that, I'm sad that he did that and I'm angry at myself for no particular reason and I wish he would just disappear or maybe I could disappear and I just don't want to see his dirty face anymore.

ughhh so i l cry about the smallest things for no reason at all. I’m sad About things that people would be happy about. Then yesterday I was playing 8 Ball via iMessage with my guy friend and I started crying. Then this morning I was looking at all our old text messages and I cried some more. I don’t know what is wrong and why I am crying, the test said I am sad but I don’t know why. Does anyone have any advice for me?
