It sounds like you are starting to experience empty nest syndrome. This is so normal. Especially since the two of you have spent so much time together. It might be a little hard for you to adjust. But as he flies the nest, know that he is strong because of you and you have helped him to grow up.
You might want to look into doing some volunteer work or other work to try to fill some time up. Know that we understand where you are coming from and know that this isnt' easy for you.
Keep posting and let us know how you are doing. Be happy for yourself and your son, take it one day at a time and try to stay in the moment.
Best wishes to you
