Should I tell my mom what has been going on with me?  She is in the states I am in Qatar and I haven't emailed her or called her in about a month or so.  she sent me an email telling me that she misses hearing from me and is worried about me.  I haven't contacted her because I have been depressed and I was wondering if you guys think I should tell her what has been going on with me or just tell her I have been depressed?  I want her as part of my support team but I don't want her to worry about me.  what do you all think?

You're a mother...put yourself in her place.
 
I'm a mother and I would want to know the truth.
Besides, like you said, you want her as part of your support team. She can't be that if you are keeping her in the dark.
 
You said you haven't responded to her e-mail over a month ago and she said she misses hearing from you and  is worried about you.
 
IMO...Give her a call. blush

I have to agree with sukay. If I were your mom, I'd want to know the whole truth. Unless there is some reason you think she would take the news very badly, I would come clean. She may worry, but I guarantee she's worrying now anyway. Give her an email or a call, at least check in with her soon.

Thanks guys. I will probably call her tonight. I don't know if I will tell her that I tried to hurt myself or not though. that just might make her feel even worse because she was supposed to come here in september and it might make her feel guilty that she couldn't come. so I just may leave that out for the time being.
