Hi Joanne,
I felt the same way when I first discovered it. Thankfully you're not the only one, and yes, there is nothing wrong with you! Here's some free resources from Ruth Van Reken that should help you move forward: "7 Things Every TCK Should Know" http://tckacademy.com/class/

Hi Rawn,
Here's what Robin Pascoe, and other TCK experts have to say about repatriation shock (and offer solutions):

"There is so much denial that re-entry shock even exists that if someone feels off because of it, they think there is something wrong with them. So talking about it, acknowledging its existence, is a good start. The ability to exercise patience becomes the number one virtue during repatriation. All of these measures will help but re-entry shock is still going to happen anyway. So it's best to just ride the rollercoaster of emotions for a while, knowing that the ride will end eventually! " - Robin Pascoe, Homeward Bound: A Spouse's Guide to Repatriation.

Solutions for Repatriation Shock
"It’s common knowledge in the relocation industry that as many as 40% of employees (and often a higher figure) choose to leave the company which sent them abroad within two years of repatriation."

I hope that helps!
