How can I tell my doctor I think I am depressed without my parents knowing?
I am 15 years old and a girl in high school. I have been feeling sad, hopeless, confident in my self, not motivated, and lonely. I have stopped enjoying doing things that I used to do, like playing board games, and hanging out with friends, and I try and stay away from other people, because the just make me feel out of place and more alone. I have been feeling this way for about a year, but never thought much about it till recently, when I noticed how everyone else seemed so happy all the time, while I put a fake smile on. I don't want to tell my parents yet because I don't want them to worry if it turns out to be nothing, and I don't want to put them through to much trouble. I am not looking for attention, I just want help. I also am not sure what to tell my doctor as well, since I don't want him to just judge me.
