Tomorrow, it'll be one year since Shelby died. No matter how things seem at any given time, the darkness has set in. i just can't shake it. i've continued having physical issues going on, and haven't been able to get in to see the doctor, yet--my appointment is for Monday. i'm tired of trying to keep going. i still haven't even begun to work on the planning of Shelby's going away party, yet, either. *sigh At this point, my hope is that once i can get straightened out, or at least find out…See More
