Some basics: Obsession over any label is not healthy. You are listed as 18 which in many states makes you capable of making your own healthcare decisions. In my state I would be required to get permission from a patient your age to discuss any health related issues with your mother. Try to schedule a visit with your regular doc or a local clinic where you can go alone. They can help you develop a plan.
