People at school pick on me by giving me backhanded compliments and pretending I don't exist. What should I do?

I'm so sorry! I know that's hard. Just ignore them, okay? They obviously feel insecure about themselves, and take it out on you, by trying to fool themselves into thinking that you're worse then them. Does that make sense?
Do you have any friends at school? If so, stick with them! Put your heart and soul into being a good friend to them, and just ignore the others.
If you don't have any friends, find another kid who is picked on, introverted, or blends in. Make friends with them, and team up. =)
Hope this helps!

Hey I know this post went up a while ago. Sorry. I hope this school year was okay for you. Take it from someone who has been the victim of severe bullying, it's not easy. I ended up having to leave my school and going to a new one the next town over to get away from it. But I have learned since I ran away from it that the most valuable thing to remember is that by not being the same kind of person that they are, you are better and stronger than them. Remember that. You can always feel free to talk to me since I've been there, if you want. I can give you my email if you want it. :)
