How often do you contemplate suicide? What's your score on the Beck Depression Inventory

I contemplate suicide on a fairly regular basis, my score on the Beck Depression Inventory is about a 36, some days it is hard to get out of bed, blah blah blah. Supposedly this means I am severely depressed. However, it's hard for me to believe what I feel is all that different from what everybody else in the world deals with.
So is it? MeFites, what do you feel in your day-to-day life? Do you see the "classic signs of depression"? What's your Depression Inventory score, if you don't mind me asking? And are you diagnosed with depression or do you consider yourself depressed? Are my results really that abnormal?
It's hard for me to justify talking to a therapist or doctor about this if it's something everyone has to deal with. I don't want to go through the trouble and the medications if it's something that simply requires a bit more willpower.
