(TW: EMOTIONAL ABUSE, SUICIDAL THOUGHTS & SH) Having trouble opening up to my friends about my mom.

Hi, this post is mainly to vent but any advice is really appreciated. I just got broken up with by my first ever lover, another girl my age, nearly three weeks ago. You might've seen my post about that titled: "My girlfriend might break up with me on Friday". As you do in a relationship, I opened up to my ex-girlfriend about many things. That includes my mom emotionally abusing me. It was a really frequent occurrence & I started to hurt myself because of it & had some thoughts of suicide (I haven't for awhile now). She's also homophobic & even expressed concern that I was dating my ex, when me & her were together. She & my father are like putting in no effort in finding a therapist for me. Last month, my mom was really nice to me. It might've been because I just got back from a music program trip & she missed me. That was great, because my Ex-girlfriend broke up with me that month & I couldn't deal with other shit. Today, my mom criticised me over my room being messy when I was in the process of cleaning it, but I had to stop because I had to do other chores. She went on to scold me about it. I hate being single now because I lost the girl who I could open up to about many things and I struggle with opening up to my closest friends about stuff like that for some reason. It might be because I don't want to ruin their perception of my mom, although they never met her, or for the ones that do know about it, I don't want them to feel like they're my therapists. Thanks for reading 

TL;DR, I just got broken up with & I would mainly open up to my ex-girlfriend about my mom emotionally abusing me. Now that I don't have a girlfriend, I'm having trouble opening up to others I'm close with about the abuse.
