Hi,
It seems like you are going through a really difficult time.
From what you've told me, the people around you are making you feel bad by making fun of you. Naturally, this makes you extremely unhappy.
You have also mentioned that you have over protective parents. This might be causing you pain as well.
I'm guessing the common issue here with regards to all of your problems is the lack of control you feel over your own life.
Other people around you seem to be taking over your life and dictating their terms. When this happens, there might be times when you feel useless and depressed.
The main suggestion I have for you is to seek immediate help from a psychologist near you to help you deal with the feelings of the abuse that you have gone through.
Also, talk to your parents about your depression. Tell them about the abuse and the sadness that you feel, and that you need professional help.
Chances are, they will support you to get the help that you need.
Maybe we could continue this session online over private messages so that you could tell me more about the problem.
Until then, take care and be strong.
