Recently I received this message, but I'm not able to translate it


maybe and probably it is not written as it should be, but some kind of translation must exist
I would appreciate any help

It really sounds like gibberish. The words are all (mostly) correct, but it makes no sense (at least that I and the wife can figure out).
Here's a breakdown
あなたは -- You
私も -- me too
夢中な石を -- the stone I'm obsessed with
躓いている -- To trip on (like a stone)

Anyone else with better ideas?

Nope, looks like you nailed down the gibberish pretty well. I really have trouble with gibberish -- especially when it's (1) Romaji-fied, and (2) oddly spaced. It just doesn't strike my brainsack as "Japanese" and... man, it gives me headaches.
