What are you asking? The thread title is "are you depressed?" but the question above the poll is "do you feel sad and unhappy?" Depression is different to sadness. Sadness is a normal emotion that everyone experiences. Depression is an illness that is characterised by constantly feeling sad, often for no reason, loss of interest in things you used to enjoy, lack of motivation, feeling hopeless and helpless.

I then said #@%^#$&# [email protected]#%

I'm referring to Depression, or constantly feeling sad, often for no reason, loss of interest in things you used to enjoy, lack of motivation, feeling hopeless and helpless.

Severely, pretty much all the time. It's been that way for much of my life.

So far, despite that, I've managed to keep going... holding down a job and going back to school in the Fall... I remain hopeful.

Severely sometimes though I'm usually depressed to some point on most days.

I've been very lucky lately. I take antidepressants which help a lot. Without them I have been very suicidal. Sometimes now I feel very sad, but not so sad that I want life to end. I get bored and lonely a lot. I am the one who needs to fix that. Real depression needs imo therapy and drugs to heal.

I know that this may be off topic but thanks for the distinction, depression is taken way to lightly with my family who have finally just shut up about it after 35 years. :mum
I'm not angry about that anymore because I can understand that it is my cross to bear. My folks and siblings are all getting along and on with their families and I am still single and depressed.
