If you've recently sent a child off to college, you may be experiencing something very odd...something you haven't experienced in, oh, 18 years. Quiet. Cleanliness.
But that may be paired with some things that aren't so great..like the feeling of loneliness or even feeling like you're not needed or wanted.
You may have empty nest syndrome. And it's no surprise, that maternal bond is super strong and when you find yourself suddenly without your child, it's a tough feeling to get used to.
