And that's just the start of it all. I know I said I was enjoying being in Ohio, but I really just want to go back to Seattle.

My fiancee and I have discussed it and if I can find the means, I'm going to try to get back home. I don't know what I'll do once I get back there, but I need out of Ohio. My health and my sanity are suffering here because I can't get around. I'm tired of walking to the same places. I need access to public transportation.

Nice thing is though, I found a flight on Orbitz going from Dayton to Seattle with one stop for under $200 if I fly after Labor Day. That was pretty cool.

Anyways, yeah... I needed to vent because I feel like I'm just plain stuck here. I'm not remotely happy about it, but I figure after a year and a half I would have gotten used to it, but no, not really.

i've left seattle twice, one time to Champaign, Illinois, and the other to Savannah, GA. I've come back both times feeling so homesick for this place I couldn't breathe anywhere else.

I get excited thinking of living in DC, Chicago, New York...but I KNOW I will always miss Seattle and need to come back. So I am never leaving again!

I hope you find your way home very soon.

I think there are websites where people can donate miles they are going to let expire for people in binds like yourself. Or, if you can get a doctor to write a note saying your health is declining there, you can get discount fares. Maybe even a train ticket? Bus? If I was anywhere close I'd drive you! But no driving trips planned:(

I'll take a look around and see if I can find information about the people donating miles for stuff like this. Might work to my advantage.

The only problem with doing trains is unless I can get a cabin I wouldn't be able to handle the trip very well, and I took a greyhound out here, and that's where more of my health problems started because I was sick for several weeks after the trip.

I'm just not as young as I used to be. Heh.

She'll be staying behind for a few months while her son is in school, and once I get settled and find a job and a place for us to live, she'll come out and join me :)

Having just spent the weekend in a city where the buses didn't run near where I was staying, I can understand why you would be homesick. Everything's so much easier when you can just hop a bus/train and go anywhere.

Yeah, having access to public transportation since I don't drive is an absolute must for me.

I have tried explaining this to my fiancee. Even moving 20 miles from our current place would give me access to be able to get back and forth on my own.

But I really want to just go home. Seattle holds so much more for me than here. I need to be in familiar surroundings.
