I always thought that this was a stupid way of going about things. Everytime I went to my psych doctor (when I still had one) and they wanted me to "rate my depression" on a scale, I'm thinking...how am I supposed to do this? It made for a lot of confusion and frustration because I'd have to fill one out every week, and, though I never felt any different, the doctor would always say " your numbers are better, you seem to be improving" or "your numbers are worse, this is concerning". It didn't seem to matter to him when I explained to him that I didn't feel any different. "The numbers tell a different story." Well, gee, maybe that's just because I can't remember what arbitrary number I used to define my 'depression level' last week!
At any rate, I would try not to concern yourself with quantitative descriptions of how you feel (better or worse). Qualitative descriptions are infinitely superior.
