That was sad. It makes me feel very grateful though that I received the help I needed and that my story did not end the same way.

It is odd that I would be searching for Shelby Starner today and found out that its the anniversary of her death. I was in high school when I read about her album in Newsweek. I was so excited that someone my age was putting out real singer/songwriter music in the age of Britney and Nsync. I had to drive forty miles to get it the day it came out and I have been listening to it ever since. It is very sad that she had to pass but at least people like you are moved enough to learn from it. Thank you for keeping her memory alive.

It is amazingly sad, and a beautiful song, I must say...I was looking for some shelby starner's news as It was a real long time since I got her stonishing debut album, but time passes; I thought that it was strange that such a talented girl with that voice shouldn't have released a 2nd album, but sometimes it is just that they don't release lot of things in Spain, not the 'mainstream', i don't know, but today I run into this shocking sad new...rest in peace and do hope that maybe it'll help young people with food desorders. Love, Angel

I grew up with Shelby.....she was a great friend and amazing person who was taken too soon.....I will never forget the day she passed....I was supposed to go out to dinner with her and my friend...I didn't go because I was hanging with a guy....one of my biggest regrets.. she passed away that night when she got back from dinner....it is so important that girls hear Shelbys story and know she was just a regular girl like anyone else who felt she wasn't good enough....I struggled with minor forms of eating disorders for years...but after her death I lost more of myself I felt and I turned to drugs instead, which helped keep my weight low, I'm happy and healthy today but only after getting help....point being if you have an eating disorder get help...because even though you think you can control it...it may rear its ugly head in different forms in your life....if Shelby would of had the right help available to her she would be alive today....it's been nearly 10 yrs since she passed and it still feels like yesterday.....
