Believe it or not, depression and misery are two different things. Depression is where certain symptoms last over two weeks. Misery can be a temporary spurt of depression, lasting maybe a day or two. Take this test to see if you are just miserable or are depressed.

Ha, funny. Do you cry yourself to sleep? I haven't been able to cry in decades. It must be nice to be able to cry. I can't kill myself, so I just have to go on being suicidally miserable day after day after day, Great fun. For what it's worth, killing yourself doesn't work. You just wind up in purgatory which is worse than being alive and miserable. No, really - take it from me, and I'm a militant atheist. I don't have good advice for fellow sufferers, but I can say - you're not alone. There's a lot of us out here...

Most women are just down right very horrible nowadays with a lot of mental problems unfortunately, and are very dangerous psychopaths as well. Enough said.

I got major depression on the quiz, like my life is normal, i have been bullied my whole life but thats normal right? Like i just find reasons to blame my sadness and numbness on but i ran out of excuses. im pathetic I cry so much and I hate it, i remeber being a rly happy kid, and cant tell my parents. Ive never been able to talk to them, we are distant, im scared what they r gonna do if they find out and my friends wont take this seriously. I seriously want to be normal again but i got no one to help me

Okay, so a few years ago when I was like 8 I think , I was like "What's the point of life anyway?" Then yeah, had thoughts about it. Then I discovered "One Direction" (dont judge) then I fell for the member named "Louis". Then I was like, "I'm just gonna be strong for Louis! I want to meet him so I just have to keep fighting!" Then yeah, suddenly my life had meaning. Then I've thought about this the past few days, "After I meet Louis, what am I gonna do in my life?" Like, I already achieved my goal if I meet him, what would I do afterwards?

Apparently you need to be suicidal to be depressed.
If i dont think of ending my life or cutting myself and if i havent tried recently then im not deppressed at all.
According to the quiz.

Well, I could be a little depressed or majority depressed. My parents just got divorced, hate my mom's bf, and now moving schools. Have a boyfriend who I love so much but things may not end well because it is long distance. Told my mom everything, how I feel depressed, she knows I go numb every day, and thinks nothing of it
She sees it every time she picks me up from my dads, knows I am sad daily and cry all the time including every night I used to but doesn't give a crap. My friends think it's normal and I have no one else to go do. No one cares and I feel hopeless and I guess from the quiz I'm minority depressed which I highly disbelieve....

This is a bare bones quiz to see if you are depressed or not. I have depression and it said I'm just miserable

I'm almost 18, have a life that could take me to the Olympics in horse riding over jumps, my family is loving, my grandma is dying of pancreatic cancer, and I wish my life was over or going faster.

I'm scared to have friends, I'm reluctant to tell my parents because they might not understand me, and I'm naturally a reserved quiet woman\teen girl.

I also believe in equality, and love and everything in the world no one offers or is too scared to try in fear of depression. I'm confused all the time, want to sit at my chair doing my schoolwork, even if something goes right in my riding there's the never-ending fear of ending my life.

Most women nowadays are really very depressed and miserable all the time since i myself have met these type of women unfortunately. And i guess that many of these women have been very severely abused by the men that they were with at one time, and now they're taking their problems out on us good innocent men since i know friends that had this happened to them as well. Very frightening women today everywhere which they really should get some kind of help right away before their problem gets much worse.
