    Are You In There Somewhere? I Miss You!

    I miss my grandmother very much these days but the saddest thing is I miss her most when I am with her.  I spent many days taking care of her but taking care of her physically seems easy compared to trying to care for her emotional needs. She is just so unhappy and mean. She...
