Cannot really comment yet about what you are asking as we are not over there up yet but are going to give it a try very soon , could being bored be the problem , maybe a change inside the Philippines or even a hobby could help you along .

but to be honest, if it was not for my family, I would have been out of here many years ago.  

If it were not for my wife, I would have never come here to live. She dutifully followed me from different jobs in the US and Europe for over 35 years. When we retired, she suggested she would like to go home---so how could I refuse. She has regrets about this decision now as her family is about as sorry as they come.

IMO the country itself is not much better.

Is there no chance of moving back to where you had left  if you both are regretting the decision that was made

Sure, there are many things to grip about but I guess they're just that, gripes so I can put them aside and live a comfortable enough life

I live the same way, I put them aside (we really have no choice).  We live in a third world country that really wants to stay a third world country.   Having a family here and knowing what they have to look forward to in the future, makes the pill a little more difficult to swallow.   We do our best, laugh, enjoy, see things when we can etc....   But I share Lee's sentiments.

There is certainly a chance of this of this happening---we have been selling off land assets for the last few years to accomplish this.

I'm not sure---despite what the wife says---that she is ready to push the get out of town button. Whatever these family turds are--they are still her family.

She has wondered aloud about who would take care of us at the end in the US since we have no relatives there.

Health issues are also catching up with us. I fear the worse if we did stay here and had to depend on local healthcare to be of some use. They haven't been to date anyway. YMWV
