OK, 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 often than normal?
  • 2
    How much do you feel sad during a typical day?
    How much do you feel sad during a typical day?
  • 3
    Have family and/or close friends commented on your changing moods?
  • 4
    Have you noticed a change in your eating habits or your weight?
  • 5
    Are you having trouble sleeping?
  • 6
    Do you frequently feel helplessness, hopelessness and self-loathing?
  • 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 or starving yourself, or trying to self-destruct in another way?
  • 10
    Finally, what do you think you are?

Maria: Tell a school counselor what you have written here. If you feel your parents have not taken you seriously, a school counselor should if you don't hold back and are completely honest about what you're feeling. The school counselor should give you some options on what you could do to help your depression, and may even help tell your parents if you need help with that. Schools offer free counseling, so at the very least your school could help you, free of cost. You definitely need to reach out to a professional (even a trusted teacher, if not a school counselor) and be very straight forward and open about what you're feeling. Don't keep anything from them. You have to help yourself by being very transparent if you want to get help from others and ultimately feel better. I know it's difficult, but you CAN do this. You are strong enough to speak out. Don't hold back, and be there for yourself like you deserve (you do deserve it).

can someone just listen to my problems here? anybody please say yes sooner or later.
i just don't know where life will lead me soon
im having pain emotionally and physically. i have a lot of bodily pain, stomach pain, head pain, throat pain, chest pain, ankle pain, hip pain, knee pain and it all comes in bursts some days it is unbearable. i just feel alone because of the way my parents expect things from me and no matter how hard i try, i am doing something wrong. i cant go a day without getting tears in my eyes. last year i cut myself without even knowing why, but now im in eighth grade so i understand why people do it, but i don't want to ever do it again cuz all it did was add to my physical pain and do nothing to the mental pain. i've been discovering myself as of recently, and i have lost a friend in the last four months, and i think i have been getting moodier as i go. people are telling me i overthink things and that i seem like i beat myself up whenever i mess up, like for example when i play sports and i miss say, a basketball shot, i yell and kick the ground and my friends look at me like they're worried. but in truth i dont even know if they care. i feel like im nobody's first priority, even tho there are a bunch of people in my life who i would give my life for in a heartbeat. i used to be someone with a reputation in school. but my friends have become a lot further away. the one who i considered my best friend lots her father and she rarely talks to me. i think its because i have been uncovering who i really am and i was portraying this facade everywhere except in me. i found one person who i physically know, on instagram, but i rarely see her much anyway. there's a little bit more but idk if anyone really even cares. i dont know who i am, much less anybody else in my life.

Don’t be sad. It will get better. Ask for help. I don’t know any of you but I wish I did so I could help you. If your family or parents or friends don’t understand, get professional help. It helps to talk and get out of your head. Sending love.

For 40% you are becoming depressed... I'm not surprised, I haven't had a day so far where negative thoughts mess with me

50%. Recently I've been really sad and I think I have depression. My best friend does and she has it very severe. We also had a tragic event happen in our family so... But honestly I'm not sure because I'm not sad about it. It's hard to cry. I'm just sad.. I blame it on what's happening and it's really not. I feel like I'm about to cry all the time when I'm not focused or talking with friends and family but it seems impossible.

My family memebers fight a lot and we’re going through financial problems, I’m more distant from my friends and I don’t feel emotionally stabled, I lost appetite and I don’t focus a lot in school, and I think about commuting suicide.It’s been like that for weeks and I’m afraid to tell my parents about how I feel because last time I tried they said that “You’re making a big deal out of it”.My parents don’t know what I’m going through, I feel like I want to die honestly, I don’t know if I have depression or not
