Son leaves for Boot Camp in 25 days

Hi, I stumbled upon Circle Of Mom's while trying to see if there was any support for Coast Guard Moms. My 17 year old son leaves for Boot Camp in 25 days. He is so excited and we are so proud of him for choosing this career path. He is preparing himself physically and also studying his orders. I can't seem to find a way to prepare myself though. I cry every single day. He is an only child and I feel as though when he leaves I won't have purpose any longer. He is my world and I cannot even imagine what life will be like without him. I know in my head that he is making a great choice for his future, but my heart is not agreeing with my head. Are these normal feelings? Do other moms feel like this?
