I AM HOMESICK


Guest

729 views

I ONLY MOVED UP TO KENTUCKY FROM ALABAMA ABOUT A MONTH AGO. :D

 

 

 

 

I WANT TO BE HERE VERY MUCH. I HAVE LIVED HERE BRIEFLY IN THE 80"S, AND ONCE IN ATLANTA FOR A YEAR SINCE I HAVE BEEN AN ADULT. BEYOND THAT, I HAVE LIVED WITHIN A MILE OF MY PARENTS NOW FOR OVER 15 YEARS. I WORKED WITH MY DADDY FOR 7 YEARS. ******I MISS MY MOTHER AND DADDY**************

I AM 43 YEARS OLD AND FEEL LIKE A CHILD.

 

 

 

I AM SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO HOMESICK I AM CRYING. I MISS THE FAMILIAR. I MISS MY JOB. I MISS MY MOTHER AND DADDY. I MISS ALABAMA, AS HOT AS IT IS (TEMP WISE). I KNOW I MADE THE RIGHT DECISION TO MOVE UP HERE, I AM JUST HOMESICK AS I EVER HAVE BEEN IN MY LIFE. I THINK ABOUT "HOME" AND START TO CRY.

 

 

I TOLD MY FIANCE' THE OTHER DAY. ***********I WANNA GO HOME*************** I HAVEN'T EVEN UNPACKED MY BLAZER. I COULD JUST GO BACK HOME WITHOUT UNPACKING. I FEEL LIKE DOROTHY IN THE "WIZARD OF OZ".............. CLICKING HER HEALS AND SAYING ...." I WANNA GO HOME"

 

 

I AM 43 YEARS OLD. WHY AM I SO HOMESICK?. I FEEL FOOLISH.

Kim , sweetie, it is hard to make big changes in your life. You will be homesick for about twelve months and then slowly forget. I think it is a balancing act choosing either being with your birth family, or being with your new family.

 

Hope you feel better soon.

Kim,

 

I still miss my mom and dad and they've both died some time ago. Like Sue said, it's going to take time---a lot more than a month---before you get past the feeling home sick. You'll just have to learn how to plan (and look forward to) trips home at holidays or in off-season times in your case.

I moved out here to Washington in 1976, from Ohio. My parents had moved to New York a yr before. So I was over missing them (pretty much).. but although I loved it out here, it took some adjusting until I could find my way around without getting lost..meeting and making new friends. I go back once in awhile (last time had been like 16 yrs) and when I get there happy to see family, but sooooo glad I moved out here and anxious to "get back here.. This is now HOME ...

 

Hang in there, you have a lot going on with the move, new job ( you are not 100% crazy about) so lots of emotions going on..

Guess I left my heart in South Florida. I went back for a few weekends but haven't been back for a year; do I ever miss it. When I was there though, I hated all the trsffic snd wondered how I ever dealt with it. I do miss some of my favorite restaurants, stores and friends. My home there is gone and I'm having a hard time getting settled her. Only about 275 miles but still too far to go for a short ride. I knoe the way you must feel. Hey, you are starting a new life with your fiance; it will turn out great and what was said about returning to visit with your parents is true.[ Please don't cry about it; won't help anything unfortunately. Of course the fact that you can must help. My stroke 14 years ago zapped that. It's much worse not being able to cry come to think of it./color]

Maybe it is caused by the person, people you are living with. If not, then you just gotta give yourself time to settle in to a routine.

 

My second wife was like that. We left San Francisco in 1976 for Germany. Her first time away from home and out of the state. She lasted one year and was over ready to go back to California. She left me there. I'm in the Army, so I had no choice but to stay for two more years of my three year tour of duty.

 

So, Kim you got some thinking to do and decisions to make or you gotta take a chill pill and get pass the home sickness. Some of my inlaws from New Orleans went back to nothing, not wanting to remain in Texas. For some of them it was their very first time out of the city and state.

As time goes on you will get over it. Watch out for the Tornados.

Kimmy -

 

Home is where the heart is.

 

Remember that, and follow your heart, and you'll be ok. :wub2:

 

 

--- now, if you are going to continue to cry, let me know, so I can buy stock in Maybeline, because I'm figuring you are gonna need a lot more mascara!

 

Keep in mind ... We love you, where ever you are.

hey Kim:

 

Give it a time, you have just moved one month ago and you are still in US, you can always drive back and meet them, pretty soon this state will become your home. when I came from India, it was huge adjustment for me, but there were lot of things were in my favor, and now NJ,USA has become home to me, I can't imagine going back to India and live there. though visiting is ok

now that my parents stay in NY year-round (they have done so since my dad's first major stroke in 2003,) i miss the vacation periods that i had when they were in florida for five months in the winter and i didn't see them except when i went down to fla. for a few days. i also miss them being so involved with their lives that they didn't need to talk to me several times a day.

 

i suppose that i'll miss them once they are gone, but they will probably haunt me afterwards if i don't miss them or think about them enough.

 

you just moved about a month ago from a place that you have lived in for a very long time. it takes time to get used to a new place. take Fred's advice and take things one day at a time.
