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.

Doctors don't judge you because they are there to help you. If you know your doctor's number, just call him/her up and ask them to give you a discreet appointment. However, I think you should involve your parents because they will help you in any and every kind of way so you can get through this.

Doctors are not supposed to judge you. If you feel your doctor does, you might want tell him/her about it. It's your right as a patient to receive the best care from any doctor.

You might consider telling your parents. Sounds like you need their help right now. You also need their insurance card and/or money to pay for doctor visit, therapy, medication and whatever else you need. Don't be concerned about causing them to worry. That's their job, they are parents.
