I've been battling depression since 6th grade (currently a sophomore in High school)

I really don't know how it all started , however due to my deformed spine; I do get severe name called though it doesn't bother me as much as it use to it still seems that it does.

Depression has tooken over my school work to the point i can't concentrate and always procrastinate.

Making matters worse i have a sister who always barges into my business and reads my grades just to tell my father that then takes away EVERYTHING I normally do (tv/computer/Gaming system) And also get yelled at severely

This is an endless loop that i can't really get out of...

Any helpful advice would be thanked.

I went through the same thing to with the homework. It feels like there is no point so you can't concentrate and you put it off. For me I find something that makes me feel better. I play my music really loud and let it drown out my thoughts. Then I do the work. I can't help you find a solution. I'm 16 and felt like this around the same time as you, so I'm sorry. But yhe thing that helps me is music, so find something that makes you feel better, then ride that happiness high while doing your school work and it might help.

Good Morning ! 

Many people will tell you that the teen years can be the greatest years of your life. They can be—but they can also be the most challenging time because you’re transitioning from childhood to adulthood in just a few years. If you sometimes feel down because you’ve got too many pressures, you’ve got good reason to feel that way.

All of these expectations can seem like too much to cope with. You may get down on yourself because you think you’re not doing as well as you should. Just remember that you’re facing a huge  job, and nobody expects you to be perfect. Although your teen years can be a difficult time, it’s possible that you may look back on your teen years as the greatest years of your life.

Keep on believing in yourself and know what a great teen you are.

Good Morning Everyone!

It seems the biggest amount of "pressure" in my life would be my sister.
She doesn't know when to shut up nor does she know or care about others feelings
She's hit my with brushes , tv remotes , dogs cage , several other things
I push her down and i seem to be the one to get into trouble (by push i really mean push)

It seems that when she leaves our house to spend the night at a friends my family gets along perfectly and i'm happy as can be
When she returns however all focus gets put back on me.

This is a "pressure" that can't really be solved.
And i really can't just ignore her as she'll bring out her instruments just to annoy me.
It frustrates me that she gets away with everything , yet i get yelled at for her actions?
