Your score indicates that you are having a HIGH degree of issues with depression.
While most people feel down and ‘blue’ from time to time, including those with a moderate score, your level of depression is not only more frequent and persistent but will also be far more dramatic in it's nature.
Those people who score in this range are classified as being ‘depressed’. At this level, feelings of clouded thinking, apathy, pessimism, and feeling hopeless, helpless, and trapped are not uncommon.
Although good self-help information can and will be beneficial to you, depression at this level is better served with the help of professional therapy to accomplish a successful resolution of the problem.
