My sister just share this to me as she was working before in GlaxoSmithKline company and they normally sell medicines for mood disorders and depression. This is some sort of self-rating depression scale that will allows us people to know if we are depress or not or do we need help or not.So for those people who fear and feel that there is something wrong about you,I think this will clear out your mind. Here's the blog link of the depression scale and don't be shy to tell us if your depress or not!Well I took it and I am nearly depress but still in normal thinking http://tuffler.wordpress.com/2010/11/05/take-this-test-to-know-if-your-depress-or-not/

Wow this is a pretty basic test. I think depression is a lot more complicated then that. For me the big indicator of depression is withdrawl from people and not wanting to go out much. ALso not enjoying things you used to enjoy. I also feel really numb when I'm depressed. lol the question about weird spells? What does that mean? Weird is relative.

I scored 34. sadly it seems that there's a lot of people on mylot that think that depression just means you are negative and emotionally weak, rather than just someone with an illness where part of your body malfunctions. so to those people. I am VERY weak. it's all my own fault. either that or a part of you realises you are wrong.

Please, everyone remember this is just a test.Only a thorugh medical exam can actually reveal if you are depressed or not. Don't mess around.

it's a pretty accurate one for diagnosis though. I'd take out the food question, because depression can make you lose interest in food altogether or make you over-eat, but a lot of the questions pinpoint the sort of things you would be asked as part of being diagnosed. coming from a Diagnosed Manic Depressive (think they call that Bipolar now) and with definite signs of PTSD. I just need to take my husbands CPNs advice and see my GP about it, but she's 100% sure that's what I'm displaying. disturbingly, my PTSD symptoms she described when discussing my husbands sectioning are the same symptoms I'd show if someone asked me how my school life was. so I've lived at least the last 15 years with bipolar and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. and the stigma around those sort of conditions is crippling. everyone blames you. even though it's no more your own fault than diabetes or athsma.

I think the stigma about mental illness is getting better as more and more people in western society are getting diagnosed. There is however little or no treatment for it.

hi insulin I did fairly well on this with the exception of not sleeping well at night. but depression I feel is not the same thing as being upset when ugly bad things happen in your life and you have to live with it, thats reality not depression. only a fool would be able to be happy happy, joy joy. all the time.Interesting discussion really.
