I took my soon to college to move in on Wednesday.  I am so depressed and sad.  I am totally alone now.  My heart just hurts.  He was never away from home much though the years.  I just don't know what to do.

i am sure he will be ok chazzy. can you keep in contact, re ph, net, etc? sounds like he is growing up some. remain positive, maybe speaking with other mums who are going through this or who have may help. sorry that your hurting. it will get better. with healing compassion to you. jamie

It sounds like you have empty nest syndrome. I guess that is what they call it. Do you have any other children at home? It does sound like he is growing up and you can get use to that. It is hard, I know, but one day at a time my friend.

Take care, keep posting.

Chazzy: I'm so sorry to hear about how you're feeling. My oldest daughter is starting her Junior year in H.S. next week and I know we are going to have to start looking at colleges this year. I already feel the dread about this. Hang in there. Life will definitely be different for all of you but your son is still going to need you. You'll find your closeness in a different way.

We're here for you if you need to talk!

hello I am a son .. my mum and me are very close and I have lived away a lot now I am older. but we talk on skype with the web cam a lot .. a lot of the time I phone on skype with the web cam to say good night or in the evening and we talk about things we have been doing in the day.

I recomend getting skype so you can see and talk to your son when you are both online .. I keep mine on all day when I am in.

hope that will help

take care

That is a good idea Totoro. I have skype and I love it. I talk to a friend from Australia that I met here on the forum. My sister and I talk some too.

It is cool.
