My 19 year old son is leaving Monday morning for the army Iam having the hardest time dealing with this he is my first born and I have always had a close bond with him. Iam so proud of him and the amazing young man he has become. I was a marine after high school so my family and friends tell me I should be ok with this.. but Iam not this is my son. All my friends children have went to college close by so they are not understanding why am so depressed and emotional. I feel like Iam losing a huge part of me. If any of you have any suggestions on how to coup with this or just ease the pain a bit I'd love to hear it.
