I want to ask a question on Stack Overflow and to clearly demonstrate my situation I need to include a very simple diagram. How can I do that? I've tried diagrams created on MS Word inserting shapes, but it didn't show up :(

There is a button on your keyboard called "Print Screen", and you can paste it to Microsoft Paint, then upload it following How to upload an image to a post?
Taking a screen shot and uploading it as @YOU says is usually the way to go; To add another possibility, in some cases, uploading an empty image and drawing directly in here using George Edison's brilliant freehand drawing userscript is also an option - if the illstration doesn't require too much text.
