I thought I had depression... So I decided to take the test to find out if I really do have depression or am I just feelings like this because I'm disappointed in a friend. I'm always nervous and worried about things I can't even explain. For instance I'm really upset with a friend I haven't seen for 2 - 3 weeks. And he has been passing my number out to guys and telling them I sell weed. Before that he got me into trouble by telling my probation officer things. And I really trusted this guy so much. I just get this crap feeling on my heart every time I think about it. If am eating and I start to think about it I can't eat. Sometimes for a few minutes I get intense feelings of liberation when I just think no one can hurt me, and I don't care about anything. But that doesn't last to long.
In fact I've had enough of all my friends, I just wish they would leave me alone - they are not bullying me or anything, they just want me to come out all the time and have fun with them. And I'm really sick and tried of it all I want to stop drinking before I turn into an alcoholic, and they smoke weed and I end up smoking it too. And it makes you go petty... I hate it... When am stoned I feel like I can pick up peoples emotions I can feel their emotions and I really hate that and this is not helping me feel better I feel worse the next morning. Am so just scared and I don't even know of what!
Sorry I've gone off track... So anyway I the depression test:

Just to let you all know, I wouldn't actually commit suicide, its just that I've had the thought that how would my family feel if I did and how I would do it, if I did do i.e. what are my options. But I wouldn't actually do it.
So do you think I really need to "seek help"? I don't think I do, its just a phase am going though I think because I've failed I don't have a job I have to get money from my family I have nothing to look froward to the future I drink am not religious when I should be, my life is just doomed it really is.
