Goldberg's depression test (Update)

Last time I took this test, in 2010, I scored a wapping 83 (anything over 54 indicates severe depression.) Just happened upon it again today by accident, so I thought I would take it again. This time I scored just 27 to come under the category 21 - 35 Minor to moderate depression. Obviously, this is a HUGE improvement. And equally obviously, this is due to the considerable positive changes that have occurred in my life since then and is something I believe will continue to improve with ongoing treatment.  

But I'm still mindful of the fact that depression symptoms come hand in hand with fibromyalgia and myalgic encephalomyelitis, whether because of an inbalance or simply because it is very easy to get that sick of being sick, that I know I will always have a risk that will need to be managed.
