I am sorry to hear you are going through such a rough time. It is very worrying when you are poorly and they cannot tell you what it is. It is very stressfull and it might be that your mum is as worried as you are. I am sure she does want to support you and do your best for her. I think the best thing is to try and talk to her and explain that you do not want to fall out with her. Maybe if she can hear how upset you feel she will see your side of the situation a little better. It might also be worth going to talk to someone outside the family. You can access free counselling through organsations like centre 33 and this might be good as you can get everything of your chest with someone who is not involved directly. Here is a link to our counselling page with contacts on it.
