Just thought I would write a little post expressing my feelings...I feel sick to my stomach, my heart aches, I don't want to let go!
My daughter is a senior and we thought she would be going to school here where we live, but things changed (classes won't transfer later, etc.) and now she will be going further away and living in the dorms, and I am feel like I am falling apart! We are very close, with her being our only child, and we are dependant on each other for so much...we have become more friends in the past year and constantly talk about everything. I know that things have to change, but I know that our relationship will never be what it is now and that really hurts me. I haven't let her see me cry. I don't want her to feel bad or feel afraid to leave home. I just want to scream at the top of my lungs!!!
Are there any other mom's who had to watch their only baby leave? How did you cope?
