The final episode of the 25th and final season of "The Oprah Winfrey Show," airing on May 25, will leave a lot of fans feeling empty. So empty that Dr. Ned Hallowell, a psychiatrist, coined a term for it:
Empty Oprah syndrome.
"People have been in love with her and with the show," Hallowell told ABC News. "They associate it with a time of stability, a real rock in their lives. It's a loss. People are going to have to grieve."
Luckily, with this disease, there's a light at the end of the tunnel.
"With empty Oprah syndrome, you look elsewhere," Hallowell continued. "You're glad she's on to whatever else she wants to do. And meanwhile, you remind yourself of what she's done for you: she's given you a gift for 25 years. And that gift won't disappear, and that's the way she'd want you to think of it."
Now if he can just find a cure for Bieber Fever.
