Today is National Depression Screening Day. As an aspiring writer, I'm supposed to be depressed - at least that's what I read. We geniuses are prone to depression - and I do seem to have my bouts. One day I'm happy and pushing forward with everything and then BAM! I don't want to do anything for a few days. It usually hits when it starts getting cold outside, and when the days are getting slower, and I have to start worrying about Christmas shopping and taking a break from writing to do actuarial exams. And on top of all that ...
I can't get published.
Man - sometimes life just sucks.
And then I eat some ice cream and I'm back on track.
So I took their online screening test. Click on the link above, and you can take the test, too. See if you're depressed. I failed the test - it said my profile isn't consistent with depression.
And you know what? That just plain sucks, too. If it's not a medical condition, then I really am depressed. I have real reasons to be sad.
Great - now I'm depressed. I'm going to eat some ice cream.
Bonus question - does anyone recognize this artifact from the sci-fi show Warehouse 13?
Happy writing! Or sad writing - whatever the case may be.
