Ok my mom does not believe in depression. She thinks it's In my head. So did my dad before he died. Lately I'm out of focus and I try to explain to my mom that I'm feeling sad all the time. I think I do have depression. I tell her I NEVER want to get out of bed. Not because of regular teenage laziness because I don't know if today anybody would drop dead all the sudden and I I'm scared. Please help. Worried

Tell your mum depression is very much REAL and is can be very difficult to cope with without help. Go to a doctor first though, to make sure you do have depression.
Just because you're feeling sad, does not always mean depression - always go to a doctor to check. 
Try to calmly explain to her the difficulties of depression and perhaps show her some things about it on the web. Sitting down and talking about it mostly helps and show her how hard it has been for you. Perhaps you could talk to someone at school about it, too, like a school counselor or a best friend. It's always good to get things like this off of your chest. 
But go to a doctor so you can get diagnosed too, she can't deny it then and the doctor will give you things (tablets or therapy) to help cope wit the sadness.

I've never dealt with this but I hope I can help! I've seen and read some articles on depression and I think you should check them out if you have not. Also calm yourself down with music.

If you're truly concerned go talk to a doctor. None of us can diagnose you or do anything for you. You have to help yourself by taking a step and telling an adult, such as a teacher, school counselor, or doctor.
There's a difference between being depressed and having depression. I want to share these quotes with you from an article I read that I think explains it very well.
 
"I have those times where I start crying while brushing my teeth and I'm not sure why. We've all experienced this to an extent. You go through a patch where staying in bed all day isn't just the better option -- it's the only one. But as blue as things may look at that point, a lot of us are lucky enough to have the ability to say "I'm feeling depressed," as opposed to "I have depression."
 
There's a big difference between those statements, and the key word is feeling."
 
"Let's call my friend Hubert. Why? Because Hubert is a funny name, and nothing about this situation is funny.
 
Hubert went through some life changes. Some things turned out less than desirable for him, but all in all, Hubert would agree that nothing terrible happened to him. This is a common misconception about depression -- you don't have to have a traumatic home life, a horrible experience or witness the death of a loved one to become depressed. Depression has no rhyme or reason. It just happens."

If you don't want to get out of bed because you're afraid someone is going to drop dead, that's a whole different issues all together. That's not depression. I'm sorry that you have to go through that, and that is definitely a concern for you to talk about with a trusted adult. But self diagnosis is almost never correct, on any mental illness or disorder. You know yourself best, but you should leave it to the professionals to guide you through it.
 
Good luck.

I live with my dad & he always threatens to take my mom to court for child support. but my mom is barely making it own on her own.  I wish I could live with my mom because she  knows how to have fun.
