“Letters to Mom”
One of her journals I found is titled “Letters to Mom”. It’s a collection of letters she wrote to her mother — my “Nana Anna” — starting about four months after her death.
Work sucks! Once again, I’m not good enough.
I was mean to Jen tonight. She won’t come to live any closer. You had a loving family around you when you died. I’ll probably die alone.
I don’t have any fun, hardly ever. David said he was coming for Christmas. Now he might not.
I can’t lose weight. My bones ache, and I feel as if I’m a hundred years old.
Donna’s a good friend. Kim could be, too.
I don’t know where to go or what to do. I have no one to talk to most of the time. I cry when I’m driving.
What’s wrong with me?
