The reality is that you can't control other people's behavior. Maybe if your parents knew more about your struggle they would stop asking you the questions that trigger you but maybe not. The person whose behavior you have a possibility of controlling is yourself. Your choice is to either find ways to counter your reactions to their questions, that is work with your internal responses, and if that's not possible you probably need to move out as soon as you can. Sometimes you just can't get other people to understand much as you might want them too. You need to figure out how to best take care of yourself. I've never found worrying excessively about an uncertain future to be very beneficial although I have certainly done enough of it in my life. It's enough of a challenge to deal with what's happening in the here and now.
