Welcome to the Forum. I am glad you found us. I am wondering if you have shared your feelings with your parents as that may be the first step in obtaining your physician's help.
Our oldest son joined the Marines right out of High School and I was crushed but I have all the respect in the world for our service men and women - I just felt he was to young. I told him that I'd supported him, ( even though this was not the future that I had invisioned for him ).
All turned out well, he received a great education and did not sign up for a second tour. He is now a successful Electrical Engineer and I am so proud of him. He did it his way.
Was I lonesome without him - oh my yes - extremely lonesome. It felt like he fell off the face of the earth but it worked out.
Remember he is not abandoning you but spreading his own wings. Support him and love him.
Know we are here for you so keep on talking with us.
