    You've probably been depressed so long, it feels normal to you. Get treatment, you could feel GREAT!!!

    Before answering, let me ask why you took the tests?

    One thought is that the people administering the tests make more money if they can treat you for an "illness."

    Which tests were they? There are reliable tests for depression, and then there might be some random made up quiz on the internet. If you think that it was a reliable test, but you don't feel depressed, I would talk to a professional about it. It's possible that you have another medical problem that needs to be addressed. Some symptoms of depression include:

    Trouble concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions

    Fatigue

    Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and helplessness

    Pessimism and hopelessness

    Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or sleeping too much

    Irritability

    Restlessness

    Loss of interest in things once pleasurable, including sex

    Overeating, or appetite loss

    Aches, pains, headaches, or cramps that won't go away

    Digestive problems that don't get better, even with treatment

    Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" feelings

    Suicidal thoughts or attempts

    You don't have to have ALL of the symptoms, I think it's something like 5 of them. Maybe you could meet with a therapist for just one session to get some clarity? Good luck!
