I threw away my life to escape from reality. I threw away my credit, my scholarship, and tuition waver in order to become a full time drug addict. It landed me homeless and in debt to several collection agencies. Instead of continuing to run from my past, with some greatly needed help, I've turned around and am cleaning up the wreckage of my past. I'm making payments to as many of my debtors as possible and being responsible about my money management. It hasn't been easy, but getting back on the right track is worth it.
