I’m in Guatemala for 6 weeks, and it would be perfect if it weren’t so damn far away from home. I miss SO so much, and now a classmate of mine has passed away. I want to honor her in some ay but I can’t go to the funeral obviously, and I’m also struggling with my own depression (she was depressed and her death was most likely suicide). Idk what I’m realy trying to say here, other than I want to stay here and go home at the same time and that’s impossible so I’m miserable

Oh, homesickness is SUCH a horrible feeling. It’s so all-consuming. But I think that the key is to take things in small ‘chunks’ of time- so try not to focus on the weeks ahead, but what you’re doing that morning, and then the afternoon and evening. It’s a cliche, but try to keep busy and in contact with home. Does your SO have easy internet access? If so, then perhaps you could arrange for him to send regular short messages for you to pick up (and have something to look forward to getting).
Also, condolences about your friend. That is awful, awful news and I’m not surprised it’s affected you.
So, not much real advice here, but just a post of sympathy for your situation. x x

Thank you so much for your reply. I went to my volunteer job even though I had to force myself, and it honestly helped take my mind off everything.

How terrible! I am not good at being away from home, I get so homesick too! Try to keep busy. Sorry to hear about your classmate. Sending good vibes!
