Im an i ternational student doing my masters degree in New york. I’ve been here for 5 months already. Since my first day here i’ve been experiencing constant panic attack and worry due to changing of environemnt and culture. After 3 months the anxiety getting better but i still experience it from time to time it just that it was not as bad as before. I’ve been crying a lot and when the anxiety happen i can’t do anything and have the urge to move and can’t stay still. Because of this problem my husband decided to come and spend time with me during my winter break. He is here with me but he will go back to my country in 2 weeks time. Eventhough 2 weeks seem a long time but i already feel sad about his departure. I cried almost everyday and i woke up in the morning with a racing heart beat worrying if i might experience the panic attack again. To be honest, what i experienced the first 3 months i was here is not pleasent at all and i really really dont wanna experience that again even for a couple of mins. Im not sure if im having anxiety or just a terrible homesick.
