I need some advice.... My oldest is about to graduate May 24th. I was 22 when she was born, divorced her Dad when she was 9, we have been inseparable! She will be going off to college in the fall, and I am all for it and so proud of her...I want her to have this experience and be all she can be. The problem I am having is letting go emotionally...I recognize that it is normal to be sad...but I feel like I am not handling this well at all. I cry EVERYDAY!!! and I do not want to embarrass her at her graduation and her LAST dance recital in June. But I KNOW I will not be able to control my emotions and tears. I guess what I need to know is if I am NUTS and need to go see someone or if anyone else has felt this way. I hear so many parents who say they cannot wait til their kid graduates....but I do not feel that way at all and mostly I need to know if I am crazy or not, and what I can do to try to deal with this better!!! Thank you for your response in advance!
