I'm not sure what is wrong with me. After so many years I'm becoming homesick. I miss my parents and my home -- even with all the negative stuff that happened. Since a Chanukah started I've been depressed and it only got worse on Sunday after going to a Chanukah party. I was so grateful...and still am...for the family that invited us (my aunt and uncle and their kids) but I guess I realized what I truly miss at the same time. A functional dysfunctional family that got together occasionally. I feel so alone that I almost feel like I don't exist. I don't know how to explain the emptiness. I'm crying all the time and today was worse than usual. Usually I get sniffy. Today my daughter was home and I hid out and really cried a lot. I'm trying so hard to make everyone happy this holiday but I'm clueless on how to make myself happy since the one thing I really want I can't have. I know I'm an adult now with my own family but I still crave my family from when I was a child. I feel like I'm not tethered to anything and will just float away one day into nothingness. I don't even know how to describe how upset I am. I eat and everything tastes like cardboard. I can't talk to my therapist because she's still away in rehab for a broken leg. I cannot and will not speak with her substitute. It just isn't feasible. I want to get into action and solve this problem, but I see no solution. I'm just really, really stuck.

I figured I should get back on and say I finally got through to my therapist who is now home. We're going to have a phone session tomorrow but she isn't going anywhere until at least five to seven wks from NOW....that seems an eternity.
