My daughter left for college and I miss her so. I go past her room and I start crying. I cant sleep or eat much. This is so hard. I thought I was doing ok then about 3 weeks later it hit me that my life had really changed. I miss our late night talks, me laying on her bed with her finding out all days events, going to the mall, just little things that meant alot. Can anyone please help?

I am going through the EXACT same thing. The eating, sleeping, crying. It's been three weeks. I feel so physically and mentally weak from the stress and grieving.
I miss everything too- all the stories about her friends, stories and talks (and advice) about boys, her NEEDING me is a big one- I do not feel needed by anyone, late night talks - her in my bed or I in hers, her empty room....I feel like my main role in life has been taken from me.
I am alone after about 2 decades. Living alone, after taking care of others for many years.
I am lost.
Being a single mom with only my child/daughter- we were so very close.
It certainly is as though someone died.
I don't know how to get through the crying, emptiness, not feeling needed...living alone....
I cry in the morning when it his me when she's not here, and at night when I'm in bed and it hits me that no one is across the hall...
Dearly miss her...help!

Hi Julie,

I hope you feel better by now as I am new the community. My son just left for college for 4 days and I miss him dearly. No words can describe. Empty bedroom and empty seat at dinner table had taken a haul out of me. I am still crying as I am responding your post. I know exactly how you feel. I have a great relationship with all my children, all boy, but my oldest one has always been there for me during my ups and downs arguing with my husband. I miss our late night chats while he is on his computer recording music and I was working on my accounts. Everywhere I went, he he was always with me from going to grocery shops after school so he could give a hand. It seems as if he was just in my arm and now he is gone. I know things won't be the same as it used to. He is college student and it can only get worse. I am very proud of him and happy that he made it into a good college. I lost sleep and appetite since he left. Now I develop anxiety about two of my other sons will be gone soon. Please help. I miss my son so much, no word can describe it. I just want to hold him in my arms again..
