I would recommending assessing your current sense of security.... if you are at all unsure of yourself, your value in the world or who you are, contacting parents who have made it clear that (to them, at least) you are worthless and fail to measure up is probably not a great plan.
Can you live with the disappointment of them continuing to treat you as they always have?
Are you willing to experience that, at this time in your life? Do you want or need that?
Even if there was a 43% chance that they'd welcome you with respect and generosity, is it worth it to risk the 66% chance of them being exactly who you remember them as? Can you say with any sense of certainty (out loud, please) 'I can live with that, if it happens'?
What are you hoping to get? What do you need?
You're clearly an adult now, so what parents are for at this point are just some of your social circle. Do you need that from them? Can they give it?
