I am a Frontline worker and have not been able to go home for the past 2 years. This week, there is an event back home that I won't be able to attend because I am waiting for my EAD/Advance parole which was filed in the last week of September.
I know that missing out on important events from home is a fairly common experience for most immigrants. I usually do okay with homesickness but this has been hard to deal with. I am not a crier but I have been crying every couple of waking hours this past week.
How did other people deal with something like this?
