It's probably HER (grandmother's) attitude that led to me dropping out of school the last time in order to work to pay the bills.

I may be stepping over the limit here and I appologize if you feel I am. I realize family is different for everyone. You may be very close to your family, but you might also feel enough is enough. I can't handle my family's negativity so when I go home I don't stay with them...it helps keep the peace, my sanity, my focus.

I guess what I'm trying to say, and I don't know how reasonable this is, maybe you should give yourself some distance. If grandma's negativity helped influence your decision to quit school the first time, and you are now realizing that school is where your focus needs to be, maybe school shouldn't be a topic with grandma...

Family is always sooo touchy...
