    Haven't done it yet, but just looking at it, it looks like everyone would be diagnosed with depression in some way.

    Except Todd. :lol:

    EDIT:
    51
    Severe? Hmmm

    I dislike this because it is set up so if you are just once in a while upset and the like (basically, if you are normal) you are diagnosed with at least slight depression.

    I got 5, but thats cos i'm on holidays and have been with friends everyday this week.

    Only 3 for criticizing yourself or blaming myself, and 2 for being tired (i just played tennis so pretty much why).

    17 = 11-25 Mild depression

    Dammit! xD I'm not surprised. I'm a loner. But last December I had unexplainable acheyness, strep throat, almost got bronchitis, and I have a sinus in fection as well (which was on my birthday as well T-T), so.. yeah.. On the other hand, the best I felt that month was when I heard Chester singing My December.

    Ha ha, my number's 17, the same day date of my birthday! *noodle'd*

    44. Moderately depressed. However, the loss of interest in work, etc., and the tiredness is because I stay up 'til 6 A.M., and I'm a major procrastinator. Plus, I've always swung back and forth between being really hungry and not hungry at all. It varies week to week. Just saying.
