"Are You Depressed" Quiz

Before you begin here, let us tell you that we are not medical professionals. This information has come from reliable sources. These quizzes are simply guidelines to help you recognize any problems you might have and be able to effectively deal with those problems.

Because depression can be the most serious of our topics, let’s start by seeing if you may be depressed. Keep in mind that everyone has their “blue” days. The thing that separates clinical depression from simple melancholy is that the symptoms occur over a period of time. They don’t come and go, they stay around for awhile and can affect your life adversely.

Ask yourself the following questions. Answer yes if you’ve been feeling this way consistently over a period of two weeks.
  1. Do you find yourself constantly sad?
  2. Are you un-motivated to do simple things like shower, clean up the house, or make dinner?
  3. Do people tell you you’re overly irritable?
  4. Do you have trouble concentrating?
  5. Are you feeling isolated from family and friends even when they are around you?
  6. Have you lost interest in your favorite activities?
  7. Do you feel hopeless, worthless, or guilty for no reason at all?
  8. Are you always tired and have trouble sleeping?
  9. Has your weight fluctuated significantly?
If you can answer “Yes” to five or more of these questions, you could be suffering from clinical depression. It is important for you to seek out the help of a medical professional whether that be a doctor or a therapist. There are many medications out there that can help with depression.

I always tried to deny my own depression, but once I began taking an anti-depressant, I couldn’t believe what a difference that one pill a day made! It gave me freedom from the “black hole” I had fallen into and helped me enjoy life again, so if you think you are depressed, ACT NOW! You deserve to be happy!
