So all of /home is on a partition but just your home folder is gone? Have
you ran a file system check on that partition? Do you have backups? Have
you checked lost+found on that partition for files?
Also just so we have a better idea of the environment could you please give
us the output of these two commands?
sudo fdisk -l

Do you have encrypted home folders enabled? If so it could just be
failing to mount your home using encfs for some reason.

Sometimes my home folder is missing. When I boot up and get to the
login screen, I enter my password to login and it does not load the
desktop, but goes straight back to the login screen. And just now my
home folder literally just disappeared. I can see other user folders
in /home but not for my current user, although I am still logged in.
I am using Ubuntu Studio 12.04 XFCE and it is up to date, the last
updates were applied this morning, although the problem has persisted
for a while now. Although today is the first time I have lost my home
partition while logged in.
This is a real nuisance. I can see home folders in the same partition
for other users (from other distros I have installed on the same PC)
but not my own.
Any ideas why it keeps getting hidden and how to prevent it getting hidden?
