I can relate to some of your issues and hope you are able to get counseling to help work through them. I was bullied and suffer with an eating disorder as well, but counseling and medical attention are a necessity if its affecting your ability to function and follow through with accomplishing your goals.
Sounds like you want to succeed and you will, but don't have the kind of support your need work through things and stay motivated. Perhaps your parents can get you medical help like seeing a therapist and so forth. I think you can benefit a lot from it.
Give the friendship issue sometime. Eventually, you'll find your niche and cross pathways with others who can relate and enjoy friendships. I wish you the best in school.

"how can i ever fulfill my dreams?" In a word: persistance.
how the hell does this get better? In an other word: Perseverance.
Two simple words that are, to me at least, both simple and clear cut yet convoluted at the same time, as far as for realizing your dreams and seeing your way to things getting better.
When people ask me questions about my behaviors or habits thats none of their business, I pull one of two routines: (i) First method: Vague answer and then quickly ask him/her a question, right as their in the middle of answering, ask another question, or if they don't answer the first, ask it again, or ask another. But I keep the pressure up and keep it on them. (ii) Second method: Be blunt. I will say something like, 'That's none of your business'. Or slightly subtle 'Aren't you the Nosy Nelly today'. Etc. Then quickly turn to someone else and start talking, ignoring the first person.
In both cases the key is to maintain eye contact, smile while doing this and keep an even tone of voice. Personally, I hate doing the second option but I've learned people will treat you exactly how you let them treat you.
As for making and having friends, I've learned it's true like the saying: if you have 1 true friend you are rich indeed, if you have 2 true (really genuine) friends, you are wealthy beyond imagination. When I was younger I thought this can't be true, people have more friends than one or two. Then I learned the bar for friendship must and should be set high. That's my opinion. As such, I keep many acquaintences for the various interests and hobbies I have, but only a very few geninuine friends. So ponder all the interests you have and seek out others like minded.
Best of luck and Peace be upon You.
