Homesick and Unhappy

OMG! I am at the library using a computer, since the wi fi system at my daughter's house just didn't cut it at all. Being here at my daughter and SIL's house has been a trying and emotional experience for us all. I came into their life and require a lot of personal help, I disrupted their daily routines and their lives and mine have been totally in chaos. I feel like such a burden on them--not feel--I know I am, I have wept more than ever before in my whole life.
Horrid scenes, yelling and screaming and recriminations on both sides. I who loved, enjoyed, and reveled in my quiet life in Mississippi live on a knife edge of misery, having to ask for help, trying not to be trouble, but with a basic grumpy personality, it's been a mess. A big mess. Chest pain, worry, unhappiness is gonna kill me. They have said "nursing home" several times. I say no, I want to go back to Mississippi and if it comes to a nursing home, I want it to be near my home where I know everybody. In Mississippi I know a couple of ladies who could come by and help me out. I want to try that first.
There are a whole big black potful of issues betwen my dau. SIL and I. I don't know how much longer any of us can take it. I am so emotionally depleted I can think of only one thing--going home. It's springtime in Mississippi. The dogwoods are blooming, and the yard is covered with purple violets. I am acutely homesick and if I die alone there, I will be happy.
Goodbye to all for now, from susil.

PS I apologize for not phoning or writing to friends as I should. The phone situation is another matter.

Seems like you would be happier at home, and things would be less stressful for your daughter and sil. Why don't you just go home then and make yourself happy?

Take heart! It will get better. Your hearts are in the right place, it is just too hard.

I am so sorry, and you know I am thinking about you every day. I just wrote you a letter, but didn't seal the envelope, so I'll add some to it.

sending much aloha and wishing you the best. So sorry to hear things are crazy and sorry I have been out of touch myself. I've been so busy with school, work, and my own life...HUGS

You might be much happier in a nursing home in Mississippi. It is hard to
live with anyone. If you can get home health care, maybe you can go home
Sue. You are living my worst nightmare. Love you!
