4812622my theory is that every shitposter is a lonely, depressed, attention-seeking nerd or they would spend their time doing literally anything else
depression has varying levels, its not a no, i am happy, or yes, i think about hanging myself every day
try taking a test https://www.psycom.net/depression-test/
I don't recommend visiting an online website for any real diagnosis of mental illnesses or issues, because people can develop mindsets or mentalities that can be exaggerated and/or not accurate at all.
6 months ago I went to a therapist and told her about my life and how I felt, about a lot of individual issues while answering her questions and after the hour she told me I have minor depression and recommended trying to be heavily involved in a routine(i.e. getting a job or being in class), exercising, eating a healthier diet, etc. The visit was free, and I felt comfortable that a certified therapist went ahead and let me just express locked up feelings and give me input, and thanks to her I'm comfortable saying I'm in a much better place now than before.
tldr; dont trust tests on the internet, because every individual is unique and you can be exaggerating or not recognizing your situation based on a test online, even if it's backed by multiple psych companies
also im pretty sure Elliott made this thread with post-post ironic intent with a dash of realness
