my mom's negativity and unstable moods lately have impacted me. she's very stressed because of a lot of things and i'm very sensitive to other people's moods, especially when their bad mood is angled towards me. i'm sitting here, after getting off the phone with my mom, on the verge of tears because she's stressed and snapped at me. i'm not even sure if she wants me to come to mississippi with her because i'm expensive and needy. i think she just doesn't want to hurt my feelings by telling me no. i hate this. i hate feeling like a burden to everyone.

She may be stressed for reasons we do not know. Try not to read into other people’s unhappiness, it may have nothing to do with you. If you want to be with your mom, then go with her if you have the option. If i snap at people it’s because I’m overloaded. We often exhibit our worse behavior with loved ones because we feel safest with them to be authentic. You are a legal dependent, not a burden. Please do not put yourself down if the adults are grouchy. You are not needy. Even if your are fragile or sensitive, that it not your fault.
