My family moved abroad as I am going into 1st Year, and I am very homesick watch

    I don't usually get homesick easily at all. But my family moved to the other side of the world this summer with my two younger brothers so it's just me in UK moving into university etc. I don't know why, but I am really missing my siblings. The thought that I am no longer their older sister always present and that they will grow and develop without me being there very much apart from holidays makes me really upset.

    I don't want to go into 1st year like this, all sad and stressed out. It's all happening so fast and lots of changes are going on. Does anyone have any advice to deal with this anxiety?

    It's a change, and you will be gone for a while, but not really for that long. You'll be around for holidays, and at least some of the summer. It's normal to feel sad that you won't be around all the time to help them but as it is I'm sure you don't watch over them 24/7? So there are ways of keeping in touch like Skype that'll make the difference seem not too bad. And anyway you'll probably be so distracted by your new environment that you'll not miss them as much as you think.
    When you do though, you could also talk to a housemate or a new friend about it. After two terms at uni my friends finally said that first term would have been a lot easier if they hadn't been embarrassed to talk about being homesick. The university should also offer student support on it so look that up.
    You'll be fine, and have a blast, and tell your brothers about it when you come home

    As soon as you start and start to make lots of lovely friends, I'm pretty sure you'll be distracted from being sad and have a great time
