Italian term or phrase: nella
Is the following language even Italian? For the life of me I cannot figure out how to translate what this says. Thanks

Sono Judy spiacente,
Sono nella difficoltà reale qui. Desidero che ci erano più potrei fare al momento. Ancora ritengo le stelle che e la luna sopra ma non sono come luminose. Risolverò queste cose. sempre. Capisco se non potete aspettarli. Dopo tutto, li desidero essere felici.

English translation:I am sorry, Judy
Explanation:
The text is incomplete, and many words are mispelled. Anyway, this is the approximate meaning:
I am sorry, Judy.
I am in real difficulties, here.
I wish I could do more at the moment (original not clear).
I still believe the stars and the moon are above [me] but they don't twinkle as they used to. I will solve these problems. Always. If you cannot wait, I will understand. After all, I want you to be happy.

Explanation:
Hi Judy,

This looks like a \"translation\" of English into Italian done using one of the less successful automatic translation programs.

Let\'s try to work it out, translating word-by-word as literally as possible.

Sono Judy spiacente,
I\'m sorry Judy,

Sono nella difficoltà reale qui.
I\'m in real difficulty here.

Desidero che ci erano più potrei fare
al momento.
I wish there were more I could do at the moment.

Ancora ritengo le stelle che e la luna sopra ma non sono come luminose.
I still hold on to the stars and moon above but they\'re not as bright.

Risolverò queste cose. sempre.
I\'ll work these things out. Always.

Capisco se non potete aspettarli.
I\'ll understand if you can\'t wait (for them).

Dopo tutto, li desidero essere felici.
After all, I want them to be happy.

Explanation:
nella = contraction for "in + la", that is, "in + the".

As for the rest of the text, I agree with the previous answerer.

Explanation:
So sorry, Judy --

I have a lot of stuff going on here. I wish there were more I could do right now in this situation. I still believe in the moon and the stars above, but they\'re not shining very brightly. I will work these things out. Never any doubt. I can understand if you\'re not holding out much hope for them. After all, I wish that they\'d be happy.
