Gaping hole in my heart-son left for college
My son was home all winter break and left a few weeks ago for the new semester. I was fine up until the day he left and then wham, I have a gaping hole in my heart and feel like I'm in mourning. I do have other children but my life feels so unbalanced without my older son at home. I went through a really hard time when he left for his first semester but eventually I got through it, not sure why this happened again. I just cry and think about him being away. I talk to him on a regular basis but don't share with him how my life just fell apart without him. I want him to enjoy his time away and to allow him to continue to grow into the great young man that he is. I feel so empty inside and sad. I am so happy for him and very proud of what he had done. I even have anxiety attacks because of my missing him.
