Not to make feelers across the nation cringe, but I find a way to quantify how I feel find the root, and then act upon that to fix or see the situation.
Yes, except I still love the internet. I don't know if it something I love doing since it is just surfing the internet? I think I am growing sick of it though.*Have you lost interest in the things that you used to love doing?
*Do you find yourself thinking that life is pointless?
*Do you feel sad about past occurrences to the point where you can't shake off the feeling?
Eh, yeah I guess I could visit sometime. I haven't ever been to a shrink for something as personal as this. It has always been academic related.Then you might be depressed .... You may also just be in a slump. And don't be fooled. Those can last for a long time.
I don't really know any tests online that you can take... but I'd say going to a shrink - even once - is worth it. You may walk away with a lighter pocket, but at least you'll know for sure. I mean, that's the point of going. Online tests are kinda ... "eh", anyway. It's hard to find a really good one.
Ishan, I gave your post some thought and I believe I have a probable solution for you:I don't want to come to the conclusion that I am depressed or something similar without being sure. I mean, that's a very stupid thing to do.
I've been so melancholic lately (and on and off for the past 3 - 4 years) but I haven't really thought of it as depression.
So, would anyone know if something over the internet would help me know if I going through any such thing or if it is just a phase? I don't want to go to the shrink just right now without knowing for sure.
