I just found an online version of the PHQ – 9 test. I thought I’d do it to see how I was doing…

Scarily I got a score of 19 which apparently indicates Moderately Severe Depression.

Funnily this is proof that you can be depressed without feeling down…I don’t feel down or ‘depressed’ just a whole lot of other depression and anxiety symptoms.

NB I have always avoided knowing how the PHQ – 9 test is worked out so I can’t manipulate it. πŸ˜‰
