Singapore
September 3, 2007 3:19am CST
I grew up in China, but I went to university in Singapore for my Msc degree, I needed to study in Singapore for at least 2 years. It has been a half year that i didn't go home. I am missing my family very much. Everytime i called home hearing my parents' voices, i felt so happy as well as sorrowful. I am depressed recently as there are some troubles with my work, which makes me under a bad mood. and this cause my homesickness more serious. Anyway,are you feel homesick often when you are alone outside?

i can understand you. fortunately, they speak Chinese too. then you can feel better. now i am very interesting about your gender, if you are a girl, then i can understand you more, if you are a boy, then i can't understand you well. how about your life in singapore. it is a beautiful country, so don't miss the good chance. there is an famous word in China, since you come there, then enjoy there.

No, actually... I don't feel homesick. I moved away from home about 8 months ago and I LOVE where I'm at. I don't want to go back home. I hate where I lived before. Not my family or my house or anything, but just... Ok, I really just hated the weather there. It's so nice here. It's so pretty, too. And I talk to my family enough. My mom e-mails me everyday.

cheer up, everybody feels that way when we miss our loved ones.. it's nice to have internet technology and mobile phones because it's easier to keep in touch with our families back home.. just tell yourself that time flows so quickly and one day when you woke up, you can't believe it that it's time for heading home again.

I was born in Indonesia, however I was sent to singapore to study since i was 17 yrs and i've lived in SG for 12 years. Yes it's totally hard to live apart from family. I see mum once a year only. It's totally normal, and I had my bouts of depression and went crazy to clubs etc. However those are temporary relief and finally when I started working I can regularly call my family and visit them regularly. Also having a BF would help too! ha ha ha... U take care.. cheers... www.myhandbaghaven.blogspot.com

I know your feeling very well.I am a Chinese also,and now I am considering going abroad to study.I think the most difficult thing for me is to leave my family.From birth to now,I have hardly leave them very far.Once I am in another country I will surely miss them very much.I hope you will get better soon,your family must have been missing you too.I want to give my best wishes to you.??????!

Ya I do feel homesick. But my case is not as bad as yours. I mean to say that my place is just 12hrs from where I study but because of a busy schedule I cant go home that often. Mosty I keep myself occupied cause the nostalgia is really painful when you are all by yourself. It has always worked for me. I think you should try out the same. True that nothing can make up for home or even close to it. But you can find some relief by keepin yourself occupied. Try hanging out with friends. It should help. It always difficult to bear separation but alas we have to cope up with it until we come up with a remedy. Don get depressed thats the last thing you should be doin. You bein depressed doesnt change anything, it only makes things worse for you. I'm sure you'll find a way out. Good luck
