I didn't realize how common my feelings are - I've been here almost 5 years, am planning to marry my American gf (who for career and family reasons would never move with me to Canada) and am deeply torn about my life choice. Before I moved here I was never much for Canuck nationalism but now...

I wonder if I've simply built up a rose-coloured image of my home and native land in my mind. I certainly remember never feeling like I could get ahead there, watching the medical system fail my grandfather, the endless East/West bickering, etc., but from my position now, facing the prospect of never being able to move home, and raising kids who will pronounce the last letter of the alphabet funny, who won't grow up watching CBC... As the opening subject of this thread said, I miss home.

Glad I found this site. A support group for displaced Canadians.
