This week, my brother moved, making our house officially empty. I'm the youngest, but my brother Jamie lived at home after college. Now he moved to New Orleans (we live in West Virginia) with my older sister. I'm a sophomore in college about 2.5 hours away from my house. On top of the normal sadness from having an empty home, my dad died 9 years ago and my mom keeps talking about all of the plans they had for "when all the kids were gone". My mom is remarried, but it's obviously not like what she had. She misses my dad a lot, especially now and she misses all of us. She told me she cries every time she drops me off at school. I came home this weekend and she's cried every day. My sister called me from New Orleans to ask if she's okay because she sounded choked up on the phone. I'm really worried about her, and I feel like it's somehow my fault for going to school and leaving her home alone. She doesn't really have friends; we moved a lot. All she has is my step-dad and he's not the best conversationalist. She doesn't want to see anyone and says she'll get over it hopefully soon but I feel helpless. Does anyone have ANY suggestions? I'm scared.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
