    Do I Need Therapy? Online Questionnaire

    I found this test on the Psychology Today website and I found it to be quite interesting and very accurate, if answered honestly. I thought that I would share it here.

    Re: Do I Need Therapy - Test

    This is a result after indicating a problem with mood with problems in no other areas:

    Although your scores were generally very good, you had symptoms in at least one category. This suggests that you should probably consult with a mental health professional for further testing or treatment, especially if you are distressed about the symptoms you are experiencing. There is most certainly a treatment out there that will help improve the symptoms you are experiencing.

    Re: Do I Need Therapy? Online Questionnaire

    Wow, this test is amazingly accurate, although it diagnosed me somewhat excessively on the anxiety symptoms:

    The following are the areas of concern detected by the screening:

    * You have suffered from what appears to be a brief psychotic episode. This could be a product of many different disorders, both mental and physical. See a psychiatrist for further diagnosis.
    * Your symptoms point to Major Depressive Disorder.
    * Your symptoms point to Rapid Cycling Bipolar Disorder.
    * You show signs of suffering from a Social Phobia.
    * You show signs of Generalized Anxiety Disorder.
    * You appear to suffer from panic disorder with agoraphobia.
    I don't think I have panic disorder with agoraphobia, but everything else has a grain of truth... the first three are spot-on.

    Re: Do I Need Therapy? Online Questionnaire

    This is what mine said -

    Although your scores were generally quite good, you scored well outside the normal range in at least one category. This suggests that you should probably consult with a mental health professional for further testing or treatment. There is most certainly a professional out there who can help improve the symptoms you are experiencing.

    The following are the areas of concern detected by the screening:


    Your symptoms point to Major Depressive Disorder.
    You show signs of suffering from a Social Phobia.
    You show strong signs of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
    You appear to suffer from Panic Disorder.
    The test also detected symptoms of one or more disorders that did not meet all the criteria, but that may still merit treatment.

    The following are the areas of concern detected by the screening:


    You have experienced some symptoms of a brief psychotic episode, but not enough to qualify as a full-blown episode.
    You experience some symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder.
    You experience some symptoms of Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia.
    You have some symptoms of Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder, although you do not meet the full criteria for the disorder.
    You appear to suffer from some symptoms of Borderline Personality disorder.
    You appear to suffer from some symptoms of Dependent Personality disorder.
    Sounds about right to me.

    The following are the areas of concern detected by the screening:


    Your responses strongly indicate that you suffer from Body Dysmorphic Disorder.

    The following are the areas of concern detected by the screening:


    You experience some symptoms of substance dependence.
    You have experienced symptoms of a major depressive episode, but not enough to qualify as a full-blown episode, or as major depressive disorder.
    You have experienced symptoms of a manic episode.
    You experience some symptoms of Simple Phobia.
    You experience some symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder.
    You have some symptoms of Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder, although you do not meet the full criteria for the disorder.
    You appear to suffer from some symptoms of Borderline Personality disorder.
    Hmmmmm, this surprised me. I expected the depression, but not the other stuff. I am not going to take this as a diagnosis though, but it does tell me that I should look into therapy.

    H! The response was much longer than I expected so I omitted some parts.

    What do your responses tell us?
    Although your scores were generally quite good, you scored well outside the normal range in at least one category. This suggests that you should probably consult with a mental health professional for further testing or treatment.

    The following are the areas of concern detected by the screening:

    • You show strong signs of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
    • You appear to suffer from Panic Disorder.
    • Your responses indicated that your relationships are at least in some way dysfunctional.
    • Your responses strongly indicate that you suffer from Body Dysmorphic Disorder.

    The test also detected symptoms of one or more disorders that did not meet all the criteria, but that may still merit treatment.

    • You have experienced some symptoms of a brief psychotic episode.
    • You have experienced symptoms of a major depressive episode.
    • You experience some symptoms of Social Phobia.
    • You exhibit some compulsive thoughts or behaviors.
    • You experience some symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder.

    Now I have a lot of reading and thinking to do. :think: Mari
