To get diagnosed with this disorder, you need to see a doctor and tell the doctor the symptoms that you are experiencing. If you think that you have the symptoms, then it is paramount that you get a diagnosis so that you can get adequate treatment for your symptoms. If you are able to talk to your parents honestly about this, it might help you to have their support in the process. You might also want to look into the local chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (
www.nami.org) in your area, as you and your parents can get much support from that organization.
