I need to know if I'm deppressed before I bring

Patient

Q: I need to know if I'm deppressed before I bring it to my moms attention. I am fifteen years old I turn sixteen in a couple of months. I lost my dad at ten. March 19, 2015 marks five years. I just feel alone and unloved it has been brought up before that I showed signs of depression. My sister was diagnosed depressed years ago. And my dad was depressed. I have went to a neurologist about my migraines and she mentioned depression. I still deny it and I definitely don't want to accept it but I'm tired of not wanting to be with my friends even though I feel like I don't have friends anymore. I'm tired of laying in the bed crying and eating. Even though I don't have the taste for food I still eat. I just need to know what is wrong or can I get over this. Or is something even wrong. I really don't know I'm just upset and confused.
