Depression spike after coming home

Posted , 3 users are following.

I've recently gotten home after staying with my sister for a month and now my depression has increased drastically. It's like I'm severely homesick for a home that isn't mine. Physically, I feel exhausted, achy, and hungry, but every time I start eating I can't bring myself to finish whatever I'm eating. Even after 8 hours of sleep and an hour of crying last night, I feel like I need to sleep and cry all day, but since I still live with my parents for the time being, it isn't possible to do that. I've been in this position several times before, but it's been so long since I've felt this worn through, upset, and alone that I've forgotten how to cope with it. Do any of you have any advice to offer on managing my depression and not crying so much during this time?
