Online tests do not give an accurate assessment for mood disorders or any other type of psychiatric/psychological condition. It would be in your best interest to seek out a medical or health professional, such as a psychiatrist or psychologist, whom you trust and who can give you an accurate diagnosis and eventually suggest a course of treatment with you. If you do not know how to seek one out, ask your family or friends who you think might be able to help you out. <br />

Once you get diagnosed, it is important for you to get as much support as possible from family, friends, co-workers, etc. because you will need it. Once you and they understand and get educated about your condition, they will become your advocates and support network if you ever cannot handle specific circumstances on your own. You will need to work with them, as well as your health care team, to help manage whatever condition you have. By doing this you won’t feel alone or stigmatized and will bring more balance to your life.
