What are some upsetting things people have said to you when you are depressed because they don't understand your illness?

Here are a few things people have said to me:
Snap out of it
Get your head out of your ###
Stop being childish
Oh and then they add they are saying this because they care about me or because I need it. :/

Yes to all the above plus these.

It's all in your head.
Try harder

I once had a Pdoc who told me I needed to XYZ. I told her if I could XYZ then I wouldn't be seeing her. She told me that I was right and I had done a good job speaking up for myself. I don't even remember the exact comment, just that I already knew it was a problem and was working on it in therapy. And I needed more meds to help.
Mom to 4 girls - age 11 (1/05), 9 year old twins (1/07), 21 months (7/14) and baby BOY is due May 26, 2016.
