Can homesickness be an actual illness?


Every time we return from vacation at my hometown I have a week of very bad depression. Happens ever year. I hate the town I live in and want to live back in my hometown. For a while I dismissed this as just basic homesickness, but I am starting to wonder if being homesick can have more serious mental consequences. Anyone know?

    You are so right. Not the home but the times had there and the people I had them with. Always longing for the good times might make us miss the current ones though so I got to shake it!

    I am unmedicated Bipolar. Normally not an issue except you are right though I think being home sent me on a really high high causing a really low low. Still feeling it 5 days later. Thanks, I was worried it was something else. Probably isn't.
