The sh*t I have to let go.

The sh*t I have to let go.

"You begin to realize, as hard as it is to admit, that you have to let some sh*t go ..." Eddie S. Glaude Jr., Twitter, this morning. I just pulled up my Google calendar from March 2019. Color coded and full, it's like Elspeth's symptom calendar now. Her symptom...
