I just got diagnosed for Borderline Personality Disorder, but I am 13. My parents and teachers do not agree on this. How can I feel my doctors are listening to me a 13 year old?

Problems cannot be solved using the same level of thinking that created them. We must try something different. Gently, we turn your challenges into opportunities for healing.

Only you know how you feel. My family doubts my mental illness constantly, but I like to remind myself that they only see what I show them. I would hope your doctor would recommend you to a psychiatrist who would talk to you separately from your parents and help you to feel more comfortable and understood. Don't try and convince them, just work on feeling better with your psychiatrist and doctor.
