    Can't you tell if you're depressed, if it's the only emotion left over ?

    Got 17, but I do think the test is quite stupid in my places. Many of the questions could be attributed to other things. Example, loss of motivation. I'm not motivated atm because I know I don't want to do the course i'm doing at University. I'm changing next year but I know what i'm doing now isn't for me. Doesn't mean i'm depressed at all, just means I made the wrong choice.

    i'm sure i'd scored severe depression. but i dont medication, just a better attitude and a little acceptance and a little love and a little accepting the fact there is a higher power besides andre the giant.

    There is actually a thing known as the Happy Planet Index, which checks the happiness of the world and different ratings for each country.


    www.happyplanetindex.org

    Plus you can take your own personal quiz here.
