Addict for 19 years on the street for 14 my children taken away from mother and put into fostercare. Doctors, support workers, children's aid all told me to forget about them I was an addict and would never change. I felt so hopeless, helpless and powerless.
But I did it found a doctor that supported my fight, an amazing mentor and personal support, and faught children's aid for 3 years while I proved my ability to stay clean and desire too provide for my children, straightened my mind out with the help of many counsellors and a neurologist, went to university, got a career and won custody of my kids. 9 years clean now and smiling every day.(short version missing alot)3

The death of my beloved family pet who was my beacon of stability in an ever changing world, moving to a new state and the onset of depression and existential crisis. I sat in my room for two whole years dying slowly from lack of vitamins and sunlight, deciding that nothing mattered, because we're little bits on a little pebble in space and we're all going to die. My entire life turned on its head, I had no friends and felt the need to hide everything from everyone, including my family. I've gotten over most of it, besides the depression and crisis parts. But hey, it's driven me in school to learn more about sciences and math to hopefully get a better understanding of our world, or at least do something everyone can be proud of. Now I'm a high-honors junior.2
