You answered 5 items out of 10 “Yes”.Â Â According to The National Mental Health Association, there is a 50% chance that you may be suffering from clinical depression and a 50% chance that you are not suffering from clinical depression.Â Â Â Hopefully, this test has helped you clarify your concerns.
Yes, thank you!Â Â I was having a few concerns about being depressed today, especially after this little incident while shopping with Sophia, where I started to hyperventilate and feel trapped while searching for “Euro-size” pillow shams in Bed, Bath, and Beyond, as if the linens themselves were masked men in 300 thread count bandanas surrounding me, hovering and ominous, the danger imminent.Â Â And then I got very sleepy.Â Â So, I went back home to take this depression test.Â Â It is good to know that I am only 50% depressed, although the last two questions seem a bit extreme.Â Â Â Hopeless?Â Worthless?Â Suicide?Â Â As bad as things get, I can always look at online photos of women in their underwear.Â Â Â How hopeless can you be when you have that?
