I have felt like this for a while. I'm not sure of an exact time when it started. I got 35 in the quiz

Thanks for your reply. This score implies that there is a possibility of you being suffering from a type of mood disorder although a proper mental status examination is required to say something conclusively. You can discuss with your GP about your symptoms, this test quiz score and most likely he or she will refer you to a psychiatrist for further evaluation on this basis of clinical examination.

Kindly also go through this article regarding the symptoms and the video from Royal college of Psychiatrist.
