Homesick people are away from home but want to be home.

So deeply affected by love as to be unable to act normally. You awake every morning, thinkin on your love, having dreamt of them all night, the pain of seperation searing your heart every time a site or smell brings back the memory of your last encounter. Daydreaming, drawing hearts in the sand, constantly thinking "I wish they were here so I could share this moment" even when pulling weeds or walking the dog. The consuming fire within the heart for even one more moment with ones love that defies rational thought, knowing full well, one moment would never be enough, yearning for eternity together.

To be lovesick is to deviate from physical and emotional 'normality'. In other words, you walk around like the walking dead, feeling empty, chest crushing, longing for that special someone. That special someone doesn't have to be a love interest. It could be a relative you've loved and lost, it could be a friend you've loved and have separated from.
When you're lovesick, you dream and think about person X a lot. Of course, that is just another symptom of lovesickness.
Life for the lovesick is just one big question mark.
Symptoms of lovesickness: sadness/depression, anxiety, crying, feeling suicidal, mourning, loneliness, loss of interest in your social life, loss of ambition, emptiness, weight loss/weight gain.
