Why Am I Feeling So Unhappy Lately?

If you're experiencing one or more of the following signs during the last two weeks, you may be experiencing depression:

  • You feel miserable and sad.
  • You are exhausted a lot of the time with no energy.
  • The smallest tasks are sometimes impossible to complete.
  • You seldom enjoy the things that you used to enjoy.
  • You don't want to see people or are scared to be left alone.
  • Social activity may feel hard or impossible.

Do I Have Depression? I don't know. But some people think I do. Lets find out!

Complete this short depression screening test to help determine if you should seek help (diagnosis and treatment) for depression.

So, What Does the Test Say? You mean you're in a depression?

The word depression really means "emotional fever." Your emotional body is running a fever. The depression test provided you with a score, letting you know how high your emotional fever is.

What Do I Do Next?

  • If your depression score is showing moderate to severe, go see your family doctor and provide him/her with the score results.
  • Hire a therapist and/or life-coach to help guide you along the recovery journey.
  • Buy a manual or a workbook to help guide your recovery path.
  • Or, better yet, call (905) 944-1711 or email me and make an appointment. I look forward to meeting you!
