To start off I'm 19 but my mom is my voice when it comes to appointments and other things like that.
My mom is my biggest support in my life and I usually tell her what's going on and we talk it out. But my mind isnt the best right now and some things I want to tell her and some things I dont because I feel like it would destroy her and I dont wanna put her through that.
So to go back to therapy I will have to tell my mom and I dont know how to bring it up to here where it doesn't sound like I'm pushing here away.
Thanks for your time!

Have more faith in your Mom and ask her what she'd think about your going back to therapy. She'll ask what's going on and just say, "I'm such a mess right now and think I need some extra help". She'll understand and will appreciate that you asked her help with the decision.

I think your mom will understand and support you if you want to go to therapy. But I understand not really wanting to bring it up.

Sometimes talking with a professional, who doesn’t know you as intimate as only a mother does, can help you more in hard times. I bet she will understand and support you.

You found the words I've been looking for to explain it thank you!
