Splendid answer rom K in grahamstown. As for how to men thibngs with your mother, why not dasy you dont't want to argue over the past, but you would like to get comfortable with her again, and talk about the present and the future. You do sound very insecure and low in self-esteem, to feel so hesitant about being away from him for even a short wgile

" How can I miss you if you won' t go away?" 

I REALLY don' t mean that to sound harsh at all, please don' t take it that way, but when I first heard this quip, it really spoke to me. And Kahlil Gibran said " let there be spaces in your togetherness" .

Maybe think about how, if you have some time apart, you can both assimilate things that will make you more interesting when you meet again. Bring in something fresh to your relationship? And remember that you really can manage fine, away from him...
