Hi Aub ! Pleased to hear from you again, but sorry there isn't good news so far. Its so sad that your parents responded in such an inadequate was, but at least you gave them the chance to be sensible. They probably care for you a lot, but don't want to think that you might be unwell in any way, and would prefer to insist to themselves that this is something minor which will soon blow over. Indeed, maybe it is more minor than it feels --- but the safest option is alwasy to get a proper pofessional / expert assessment, to be sure. I wonder whether they have managed, so far, to ignore or minimize their own upsets, similarly, and feel threatned by the idea of taking such problems more seriously.
Again I agree with maria, explore twhat might be available through school --- a guidance teacher or simply a good teacher you trust and like, to talk with and see if they can suggest a way of linking you to some help. You could also try calling Lifeline ( number on this page ) for someone to talk to directly.
