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

  • 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?

Honestly my parents are asking me all these questions like do you like living on this world, what makes you happy, what makes you sad, are you okay you seem really down right now. This has been happening for almost s month, and I hate that some of them I have to lie about and I dont want to tell my family how I have been feeling the only thing to make me happy pretty much is music mainly twenty one pilots and panic! at the disco, life kinda sucks right now

I've scrolled through the comments and it hurts my heart to read them. Please don't feel hesitant to reach out to someone you can trust. Also, please please please avoid self-harm. Anything that you could use to harm yourself, keep it as far away from you as possible. If you want to talk to someone, I can chat online with you. Even if you can't see the future, and you feel like you're at a dead-end, don't end it here. There's so much out there, so much you would miss. Please live, it will be worth it

im 14 and my best friend cuts and tells me everything and i tell her that i dont like her doing it and idk but i cut myself for a period of time before and after she told me but i couldnt bring myself to draw blood but it scarred and i have massive scars on my leg now and i feel so insecure cuz i dont want anyone seeing them im scared what people are gonna do. my family is disappointed in me and think im just going off the rails because they caught me w alcohol and drinks in my room and they dont trust me anymore. my mum just broke up with her boyfriend that really supported me and gave me a lot of advice and i was so close with him but people think hes abusive and it hurts a lot to think that because he was amazing to me and 💗 i literally cried infront of dad about it today and he didnt seem too happy

i just dont know how to feel i keep crying and looking at myself cry in the mirror - i havnt told anyone about my cutting and i dont want anyone else to find out cuz my dad saw them and we had to have this whole conversation and it was horrible

I’m sad. I feel like I’m always doing homework. It takes hours because I’m tired, bored, or just not in the mood to do it at all... the only break I seem to get is procrastinating. I only smile when I’m with my best friend or occasionally at other times. One minute I’m happy, and then.... I’m not.
I also have T1D (type one diabetes) and it sucks HARD. Then, kids joke about it and make silly comments but they don’t understand. They have no idea how much trouble or sometimes even pain I go through daily.
I know a lot of of people have it WAY worse and I probably just have mood swings.

I’m sorry for whining but I can’t stay scielent anymore. My mom keeps saying I can talk to hear about anything. But really, why would she want to listen to me after working hard all day. It’s not like she would ACCUALLY want to hear me whine when she has her own problems.

Sorry again and thank you. Hope you guys are happy. Do something you enjoy soon. That would be nice.

I feel so depressed. Everyday i just want to die but i do feel a little bit happy sometimes. I dont have depression but i feel depressed and i lost someone really close to me. There was this girl who usually blackmails me and she can do whatever she wants without any consequences. I keep telling the teachers but they dont believe me. But i am happy sometimes but i do feel depressed. I feel happy for a few hours/minutes and then i just feel depressed again. I do go to a psychologist and my anxiety got cured! I think that i am mostly cured from my anxiety because i just think that what i do doesnt matter and that i am just gonna kill myself anyway but i feel a little bit of hope and i dont want to die at the same time because i just think about my family and friends. The voices in my head are gone and i feel better but i still feel really depressed and i cry in class sometimes. Life is just so hard but i know its gonna get better!

When I say "both have been diagnosed...." I mean both of my sisters... Not only do I believe I am becoming depressed but I believe I am bisexual. I am not sure and I will know for sure once I am older but I have a feeling I am. I am doubting myself because I am scared and everyone tells me ("friends" that I have told) that I couldn't possibly know yet because I am still really young. I am just not sure. I fake my happiness when I am with people but I think it is starting to show but no one knows what to say or do (because my friends are my age). Ohhhhhhhhhhh

What do I do if I get that I am on the road to being clinically depressed but I am still very young and my parents and sisters (who both have been diagnosed by a doctor to have depression) do not believe me and my friends who are also young do not know how to deal with me?

I don't even know what is up with me. I was really miserable and depressed for the past year. It was the worst year of my life. I was sad, just cried all day and nigh, tried to sleep everything away as I thought that was the only escape and dropped low in my grades at school. Recently, I started to pick myself again and become better but I still feel that way. Even though it's not as intense as it used to be until just two months I still feel lost. I don't know if I am sad or depressed but the results of this test say I am. I don't even know how to live my life anymore. I am trying to find a reason to wake up every morning but can't and it honestly sucks. I feel so miserable and lonely right now. No one around me understands my situation and I am feeling so helpless. Things are just not going right and I guess I'll be back to that same old self of mine which was: a wreck.
