You shouldn't be embarassed about what is happening. If it is causing you problems then it's important. I do think you should tell your mom. Do you go to bed thing about good things or bad things? Try thinking about fun things or places you have been or want to visit. Everytime you think of something bad change the thought to something fun or good. Try it. It works for me.
