Hi again Apache_boy and thanks for this post.
Sadly, your mother's comment is very distancing but its does indicate that, in some way, she's interfacing with the idea that you are gay. Her comment could display denial, bargaining or anger on her part. In spite of such hurtful comments you need to hang in there and not back off from claiming your right to be a unique individual, irrespective of your parents' reactions.
On another level, it may be opportune for you to finally come out to your mother - she may be confused by the signals you're sending out (over two or three weeks). Simply sitting her down and telling her may be easier for her to deal with, instead of expecting her to interpret your messages. Once you've told her she may find it easier to process the facts and she could be less inclined to denial and bargaining.
And hugs to you too. Please keep posting.
