Well, as stated in last week’s column, this is part two on this subject, so as not to leave you hanging and wondering, “what is wrong with me ... am I depressed, or am I just feeling down and maybe this will just pass if I just wait it out?”
Well, why not take the following simple self-rating depression scale by answering “true” to those that you feel are actually true: (taken from the book mentioned last week, “Happiness Is a Choice”):
1. I feel like crying now more often than a year ago.
2. I feel blue and sad.
