Call a hot line and talk to them or suggest going to family therapy. Maybe take a few days and stay somewhere else until you know how to bring it up to your mom. No parent should say that. I have a friend who committed suicide and his mom found him. It's a horrible thing. I'm sorry OP and I hope you and your mom can get the help you need.

This might be very very unpopular here but there are two sides to every story.. OP might have been suicidal (which will always be cowardly to me) something very very detestful. Sure, what OP's mom said is almost as distasteful but give us your role in the statement, OP.
If somebody is seriously suicidal it's statements like that of OP's mom which could push them over the edge. And saying they are coward doesn't make it any better either as they most often already think low of themselves. Also, suicidal people have some real problems whereas OP's mom is only thinking of her image. To me her statement is definitely more distasteful than anything that could be on the other side of the medal.
I understand that there's two sides to every story, but sometimes people really don't do anything to deserve it. When we were watching a movie where someone was swallowing a lot of pills, my brother looked at me and said "take notes". I didn't say anything to him. And I'm not even starting on the 'cowardly' thing because most people with that view have their head too far up their ass to try empathy.
Well first off that's no way to talk to your child. Secondly, if you are having thoughts like that I suggest you find someone to talk to about it. That definitely is not the solution, no matter what your insensitive mother says. Stay strong OP.
