Wow, that's really messed up! Depression knows no boundaries, and, you don't have to be an adult to suffer from depression, as I'm sure you know! I have suffered from depression since I was 12 years old, it's just at 12, I had no idea it was depression.
If you must see this Dr. again, maybe do an online screening so you can print out the results to share with her. I did that when I finally went to the Dr. because of my depression (when I was 24!).
She needs to understand it's not in your head and that the condition runs in your family. You might even want to see about finding a new Dr....I mean for god's sake, she could have at least taken the time to talk with you and listen to your symptoms!
I hope you can see your usual Dr. soon, or, someone better qualified and willing to discuss it with you before telling you it's all in your head.
