Exclamation is this emotional abuse?

I'm not really sure where to start. Well, my whole life, my parents have never been totally happy with me (unless I win a competition having to do with music, which happens a lot. Then they parade me around like a trophy child until we get home). I'm never good enough for them. They both think I'm stupid and lazy and they don't hesitate to say so. My mom told me that she thinks that I'll get raped because I'm so careless. My dad loves to tell me that I'll never get into college and that I'll never amount to anything. No matter how hard I try, he always thinks I'm being lazy when I come home with a bad grade. I have a 3.0 GPA right now (about a B average), which isn't the best I could have, but I really am trying my hardest. It just really hurts that when I try my hardest he just wants more. He always seems to be disappointed in me. Just this weekend, he told me that he's starting to notice that I'm gaining weight. He said he can see it in my butt and in my stomach that I'm eating too much, but I hadn't considered it until he brought it up. I already have low self-esteem and hearing him say that really made me upset. I just can't deal with this on top of everything else. I already feel pressured to succeed, but this is just too much. I just feel like all of my self worth is my grades. At least to them it is, and that makes me really frustrated.

Yeah it is. Have you tryed telling them that? My dad complained about me being fat, I wasn't, so I stopped eating for over a week and said I wouldn't eat again unless he apologized. Well he finally said I wasn't fat so I said OK and of course I was hungry so I started eating normal again. A few months later he calls me anarexic and I'm not. But I'm not going to binge to prove it.

So just ignore it if they won't stop I guess. Its all we can do.

Please excuse my typos. I'm usually on my phone and it has issues.

Yes it is. A lot of things said earlier fit for what to do. I would try to solve the problem (unfortunately makes it worse for some, not going to integrate my own personal mental abuse to show that)
If that doesn't work, try to ignore it as much as possible. If you can't, talk to a counselor about it.
