I feel like my family doesn't care about me?

I'm the youngest of the family and when I get an award, good grades, or just a good accomplishment they just say good job & that's it. Yet they are always more proud of my sister and brother for the little things they do & I feel like I'm not getting any love for the hard work I'm doing. When I'm sick they make me take care myself and stay away from them. My sister acts like I'm her maid & thinks it's okay to boss me like a kid just because she has a kid of her own who she spoils, I hate how they compare to everyone about school or grades when I'm here trying to show them how hard I'm trying. I feel like every time I talk they zone out and don't listen, right now I have the stomach flu and all my dad was ask if I was okay then talked on the phone for hours and now they are blaming me for everything I did, and telling me to chores. Also, everyone in my family gossips to everyone what I do is wrong and now my relatives think of me different even though what they are saying happened like a year ago. What should I do?

Try and talk to them about it. I got A's and B's on my report card this GP, which is a huge accomplishment since I get very bad grades, since school is hard for me. My grandma didn't really do much, my mom was the happiest person ever! But try and talk to them about it. They may understand.

Go talk to a therapist about it. They can help. My grandmother treats me the same way.

You might be too sensitive. I felt like that before and then I had a good talk with my mom. And it got sorted out. Sometimes I still get that feeling but I push it away and focus on what I have.
