Help with Teen Daughter and Boyfriend

I KNOW I need to stay disconnected but it is so hard. My teen has been with this guy for most of a year. He lives a mile away. He is leaving for college in two weeks and the last couple weeks she has started having like anxiety and panic attacks. She told him she is trying to distance herself from him so it doesn't hurt as much when he leaves because she is very attached. She is looking for ways to be mad at him and all they both do is cry. It is very sad and heartbreaking I just don't know what to do. His mom feels bad but is not nearly as upset as I am because he is going to a really good school (almost an hour away) so not that far but still .....She is still in high school. I know its probably best if they take a break to see how they feel but I just don't know how to help them. I know lots of kids stay together but I just don't see how it can work right now, maybe they can get back together at a later time.
