I'm also 19 I don't see the issue unless she's tried to force you out of the house or something. Being a legal adult doesn't mean your family instantly stops caring or worrying about you. I go on walks at night and I always let my mom or brother know so they don't panic.
Not saying this isn't an FML in its own right, but if I ever did that I'd have been the one crying from the can of whoop-ass my mother would unleash on me.
I'm 27 and still text my mom when I got safely from on place to another. On longer road trips. Not every day when I come to my apartment from work. But when I have a few hours drive I'll text her once I arrived. Or she asks the next day or soon after, if everything's ok. As I am married, just long distance right now (That's where the long drives come from), she knows my husband would alarm her, if something had happened and that I also am in contact with him about safely arriving. So sometimes I forget to notify everyone :D But she does this also, when she's traveling she'll text on arrival, so we don't have to worry. I like it :)
I know the struggle. I snuck out once when I was 17, just to hang out with my friends late. Parents were asleep it was 10:00pm. I left a note saying I'd be back and ten minutes Iater they were calling me crying thinking I was off to commit suicide. (I wasn't suicidal or self harming or anything)
I once went for a walk when I was twelve. Not only did my mom get the entire family looking for me but has the police looking for me too. Needless to say, no one was happy with me for winding up two or three miles from home and being gone for six hours because I was essentially distracted.
