I have noticed reading the comments and questions that a lot of people here are either depressed or were depressed at some point but they're battling it. I am curious to see how many people feel depressed and how many don't.

Back in May of 2015 when I joined, I was depressed, but since then I've gotten MUCH better. I wouldn't say I'm depressed anymore. I have my sad day, but I would say the amount of them are within normal ranges now.
I voted B.
Despite how many complain how GAG is so negative and such, it really helped me out of the spot I was in. It let me feel I was helping people out (which in turn made me feel better about myself) along with finding people to chat with on here and make friends. Even if they are 'internet friends' and in all probability we'll never meet, just having someone there helped out. GAG also helped because I was able to write about my problems and in various opinions rather than what I had been doing -- simply holding them in by myself.
So yeah, I've been there, but I've gotten over it.1
