I moved to Atlanta, Georgia, in November, 2008, after seven and a half years in London.  Back in June, 2001, I arrived in the UK on my own, with a few small suitcases.  I’m coming back with a British husband, two young kids and 100 odd boxes.

    Hey, nice idea for the site. Ironically, you’re in Atlanta too..although, I’m moving (again) in a week to Portland for a new job.

    I cam to Atlanta last October after living in Asia for a number of years. My buddy just passed me an email with a bunch of links about reverse culture shock, and your site was one of them.

    Just left Atlanta end of September 2011 to move back to Paris, France after 12 years. I have been having depression since a week after I landed and severe depression the last 2 months. I just heard about reverse culture shock THIS AFTERNOON. It does not change everything but it feels good to put a name on this waking torture. My heart is back there and you know home is where your heart is. I will be back. Just trying to figure out the reason why life has brought me back here and then I’ll be on my way. Probably in a better way…
    What do you do in Atlanta? Do you work?

    I just wrote an ebook on how to deal with reverse culture shock, to make it easier for people to readjust and develop the right and useful mindset that it takes and actually turn it into a great self-growth positive experience instead of the usual headache and heartache it is. I had a bad case of RCS last year after living abroad for 8 years and that’s what got me inspired to make it better for others. I have some questions for you, since you are a blogger on the topic, to make it even better and more useful for the readers 🙂

    Thank you! Nice blog!
