Today, I moved into my new dorm. My mom is 6,000 miles away. And although I thought it would feel like the greatest freedom ever, I have never felt this alone in my entire life. MMT

don't worry it will pass - and to be honest if this is the greatest sadness you have in your life, you will have very happy life indeed!

yeah, it's going to get better after a while. separation is rough, but you'll live.

I know how you feel.

I made a username just to comment on this. I know exactly how you feel; I'm in college miles away from anything I'm familiar with as well. You feel alone because you do not have a personal and deep connection with anyone near you. Not friendship, not love. But it will happen. Take comfort in that. I promise. It always does. I don't even have it yet, but I know it will happen. You'll get through this.

Aww ): That's why I don't want to go to college in a few years, lol. But I know how you feel sorta...like I've felt the same way when I went to camp for the first time

i feel the exact same way.

I know it's been a while since you posted this but I also created an account so I could comment... 5 years ago I moved to college in the US while my parents still lived in Germany. Both of them told me to have fun, get involved, make friends. I missed them every day and still do because they're far away, but I'm happy now in this new life. It's hard but I bet it'll be easier on both you and your mom if you start living a full life that's not about what you're missing but what you have. That's true for the others that have commented. It's hard but the happiness you find in college (life) will bring happiness to those who you miss and who miss you.

Moving out was the best thing about college. Granted my parents kicked me out upon my moving into the dorm (because of my addiction to caffeine, and their being convinced the next step was cocaine), but I never moved back. Can't tell you how glorious it's been.

i also made an account so i could comment.. i know how you feel. i moved out of my dads house to go to college and the first month i felt so alone, an i only moved 30 minutes away from my dads
