My daughter has joined the army and shipped out last week. She is somewhere in the receiving part of the program. She cannot contact us for a while, until she is assigned a platoon, then she can write to us. I was very against her joining the army but she did it for an education. I miss her so much and feel like I have lost my daughter. I don't know if this is normal or not. I am ready to go to the doctor for advise. Anyone who can help regarding bootcamp and what its like would be greatly appreciated.

Pigeon.....it's nothing less than normal to miss your daughter.....turn your lost feelimg into one of pride. Boot camp, although I went through it in the late 60's is truly about discipline, physical conditioning and learning to work as a team.that is the goal..after boot, she should get a leave to come home, then on to her training in the field she has. From what I understand in todays services for the most part, it's just like a job..kindaa 9 to 5.she'll be fine.....

Hurray for her. I agree. be proud! Yes...miss her but remember our children are not "ours" they belong to the next generation. We just get to share them.

Sure go talk to some one about this. If it will make you feel better go for it!

If this is your only child, it could be a case of empty nest you are experiencing. As I understand, depression can be a symptom of this. See your doctor for a diagnosis, write letters to your daughter and hold them to send to her when you can, or for when she gets home for leave and share with her the love you feel. There's nothing wrong about missing a loved one, just remember, she is all grown up now, but she will always need her mom, just in different ways. Peace to you as you wait...
