My only child just went away to college 3 weeks ago. He is only about 1.5 hours away, yet I feel as though I am grieving. One minute I am ok, the next the tears just flow.
I was a single mom from when my son was 2 till 10. When I re-married, I still felt and lead a single mom life to this day. My husband works nights and weekends and doesn't speak English well enough, so he has never been the "dad" figure I envisioned. With my son gone now, I come home to an empty house most days and have an overwhelming feeling of loneliness. I just don't know what to do. The few friends that I do have, have no kids or younger kids and are too busy with their own lives to have time for me and I don't want to be that needy person... buy I feel I am so depressed....
