My brother and I were writing a list of reasons why we want to drop out of society, but apparently I can scrap that project because this is the only reason I really need.

Are You Depressed, Bipolar, Anxious? This App Can Tell You For Sure

By Dianna Dilworth on May 30, 2012 3:08 PM

If you are feeling down and think you may be suffering from a mental illness, WhatsMyM3, by M-3 Information, is an app that helps you test your mental well being.

Available for iOS and Android, the $2.99 app is cheaper than visiting a professional (through they do recommend that if you test positive for a mental disorder, that you seek real world help). The app asks questions like, “Over the last two weeks or more, have you noticed the following: Nothing seems to give me much pleasure.”

Here is what the app has to offer: “WhatsMyM3 is based on a research validated screen that in 3 minutes assesses your risk of depression, bipolar and anxiety and PTSD. After completing the short checklist you receive a personalized confidential report sharing how much burden these symptoms may be causing you. Please reach out to a professional or go directly to the emergency room should you feel a need for help.” (Via USA Today).

Some Possible Responses Include:

1. Why don’t people just lug around the DSM-IV like I do?

2. Is there an app that will point me to the best spots nearby from which I can jump and meet certain death?  Because thanks to you people, THAT’S WHAT I NEED NOW.

3. Too bad there’s no category on this blog called IT COULD NOT POSSIBLY BE WORSE.
