Can I get some perspective here?

I just need to vent a little. Okay, a lot, but I'll start small. I thihk I just need to be reassured. I have a lot of those silly, superficial little problems people my age have (I'm 17) that all add up and lead to a constent pressure on my chest so I can hardly breath sometimes. Right now: my biological mother (my parents divorced some ten years ago) is about to drive me over the edge; she's totally self centered and she thinks becuase she's at peace with herself my brother and I sould be okee-dokee too (I think not). She only wants us for her kids when it's convinient to her and inexpensive -- that's no mother. My dad, who I worship, is in the IAir Force and with everyting going on he's been gone a lot lately. That doesn't help matters any. My biggest singlre problem is being reeeeeeeaaaally lonely. My family moved over the summer, and I'm spending my senior year trying to find a nich 9not going very well) when I'll be leaving again anyway in August. I feel trapped, I guess.
I'm about to embark into "adulthood", but I really feel like a little girl. I have no idea what the heck I'm doing, who i am, what I believe in, etc. I'm so lost all the time. All thos elittle tings have buolt up because I never deal with anyting; I internalize and it's turning into a bigger and bigger mess.
I realize, owever, that these problems are not so bad. I have a lot going for me; my family is wonderful, my friends are the best I could ask for (except they're thousands of miles away, but we keep in touch), I'm going to college and I have a respectable shot at my dream. Somebody just tell me to mellow out or something.
Hey, late Happy Valentine's Day, folks.

Hey Sweetie,
You've had to face alot and thats not easy, I know. Rest assured that the other things you are feeling are not abnormal. Your getting ready to make another big step in your life...entering adulthood and thats scary. Right now you are in an inbetween place of child/adult. It's normal to have mixed feelings about who you are. Not being around your friends during this senior year makes that transition harder to because your away from the familiar. Things will settle down for you, I promise. This year is emotionally tough, but it will get better when you get to college. Hang in there. What your feeling is normal. I am sorry about your mom, thats a tough one. Part of being an adult is realizing that people are who they are and we can't change them, but it still hurts, I know. I know your worried about your dad, try not too. He knows his stuff!
I'm here anytime you want to talk.
