Schiff’s tweet came after Trump earlier that day lashed out at Lavar  Ball, father of LiAngelo Ball one of the three players arrested on shoplifting charges during a team trip to China earlier this month....

For the first time in my life, I’ve started to have panic attacks and am asking myself whether I can even go through with this wedding. Although I probably will, I honestly feel like running away. I love Brian deeply and can’t imagine my life without him, but I realize that’s just how I feel now. How do I know I’ll feel that way forever? People change and grow, and the idea of making a commitment to be with one person for...
