I may be way off the mark here, but the issue that seemed to jump out at me in reading your posts are the conflicts you are feeling over trading a significant friendship and relationship with your Mom for lesser relationships based on adventure. It's situations like this that almost demand reigning it in and thinking on it awhile instead of acting on it. Just my thoughts. Wishing the best for you.
