Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I moved to Switzerland from California 18 months ago...I do admit occasionally missing the West Coast on occasions...but my transition has been a bit less eventful than yours (externally, anyway). That said, and I don't know how long you were in California (what does that make you, Barbara, a repariated expatriate expatriated??)...but transitions to new countries are certainly not easy. Most of my turmoil is internal, and after 18 months it still erupts, so you have my deepest sympathies. Hang in there!! It will get better!! (and thanks for posting!!)
