Okay, does anyone else find their youngest child graduation an emotionally crippling event?  I do for two reasons:

 1.  obviously this means my work is done and I no longer have a little one.  

 2. For some reason she is hating senior year and getting her through this year is horrible.  

 It has been a blessing that I was laid off in that regard.  If I had to work and deal with that stress, I would be exhausted!!

  To top it off, she is actually having a medical problem and getting her into a specialist is taking forever. I can’t make her go to school when she is sick.  Missing school for sickness is adding to the stress, when she does go she is weighed down with homework for days.  She is also trying to work while all this is going on.
Anywho I hate the thought of graduation and then comes preparing for college.  I am so old:) I do rationally understand that I am still needed and will be by someone for the rest of my life, but for some reason emotionally it does not seem so.
