There are tests on line, but they can be off by a lot. There are some wonderful groups here on CafeMom to help you figure it out and help you through it. Just search for depression in the CafeMom search bar. If you are having a real problem and need help before your insurance kicks in, then call your local free clinic and ask them if they know where you can go to talk to someone before your insurance kicks in. If you don't have a local free clinic, of they don't have an answer for you, call your local hospital and ask them (if they have a psych ward, they would have the best answer for you, hopefully.)
If you think you have a depression problem, then there is most likely something going one. Could be PMDD or serious depression or even a thyroid disorder. Get the help you can, you deserve to be happy.
