How do I get my parents to accept I am depressed?

Anonymous
My parents are the only people I know that I have never told about my depression. All my friends, my spouses and her family and even my coworkers know. Everyone has been supportive of me. My parents have always had their doubts about it and they always just told me to get over it. Inability to focus is my main symptom along with the impending doom and sadness. It caused me to have trouble learning when growing up. They blamed me for being lazy as to why my grades were sub-par. In adulthood, they still think I am lazy. I’m afraid to tell them I’ve been diagnosed by a professional and have relentless medication for it. I fear they will just tell me off like they always did. What should I do?
