my son left monday 8-13 for parris island for boot camp..
raising him by myself I never thought in a million years he'd become my best friend. hes smart, hysterical, strong, caring compassionate, everything you could ever ask for in a son. growing up he always had an inf actuation with the military, and i rolled with it. when he hit 17 he was determined to go in to the Marines, and i went through the whole process with him, paper work, everything, pt, family functions.. and a week before he left, it finally hit like a ton of bricks... I wasn't gonna see my boy for 12+ weeks. *sigh*... every one has been sayin I'm overreacting. i found, i am suffering from severe separation anxiety.. I have finally after 3 days stopped the tears, and yeah still have my moments. I get up on a daily and function semi normally, I think I'm handling it pretty well.. I miss my son so much every day more than the next. Ive started writing him so when i get his address i can mail out the letters slowly but keep a consistent stream going to him. keeping my letters brief and positive, so I'm not making him more home sick than he probably already is,. ive found these pages have helped me understand more of what my son may be going through and what other familys are dealing with also.. i dont feel so alone now. thank you for reading and feel free to leave comments.
