Do you have a good school counselor? I know we have an excellent one here, even out in a rural community. She helped out a lot when I was raising a couple of "thrown-away" abused teenagers, by giving them some pointers in how to defuse confrontation. These boys had entirely different family problems to deal with than yours--much worse, but unfortunately the family was still around and they were still seeing the same stuff going on with their other siblings and a series of abusive "step-father-Mom's boyfriends" sort of thing. At any rate, she helped them in giving them ways of handling the bad situations. I am thinking that perhaps there might be someone you could talk to there that would listen and give you some suggestions on how to turn around the demeaning and negativity that you obviously don't deserve. Not all school counselors are as good as this one here, I realize--but perhaps you will luck out with one who has some suggestions for you. Make it clear you don't want any interference into your family, which isn't truly abusive, just want some advice on how to handle the blow-ups and put-downs. I see one of your classes is forensics--You could become very good at this. 8)
