Ok, my youngest brother is moving out of my parent's house this weekend, and will leave my parents childless! (They have 5 kids).
I'm feeling very emotional about it, almost depressed even.. I feel like everything is going to be different now that there aren't any kids living at home. (I haven't lived there for 3+ years).
We all go over there a lot, even without living there.. but I'm feeling REALLY down about it..

I always thought it was referred as the following.
Empty nest syndrome is a general feeling of loneliness that parents or guardians may feel when one or more of their children leave home; it is more common in women. The marriage of a child can lead to similar feelings, with the role and influence of the parents often becoming less important compared to the new spouse.
If your own children leave you then I believe you are going through the Empty Nest Syndrome because they left your nest.
