Olive

At the end of August, Olive passed away. I still have not recovered from her death. I had no warning when I dropped her off at the vet that it’d be the last time I’d see her. She was very old and not in great health but I was in shock. I feel guilty for […]

I’m adjusting to being single, managing chronic pain, and struggling […]
