A big obstacle in my life was when my parents divorced. I wasn’t like my other sisters who wanted to live with just one parent, I wanted to live with both.

I got to the car and she told me that we are going to the hospital, grandma is not doing good.
Imagine your entire life coming to a halt and as the days progressed as you stood stationary waiting for life to pull you into the current moment. Raging skies and a slight drizzle created the morning atmosphere and I gathered my school stuff before leaving the house. I lived around the corner so walking in the weather wasn’t a problem, as the morning went on the fall of the rain increased by the hour. I can’t remember
It was the Friday that we went on to Spring Break, we had skipped the whole day almost, but we still made it to school. The girls and I were ready to spend time together before I went off with my mom for Spring Break like I always did for each break.

Traveling to another state is, for many people, a fun and unforgettable experience. When I was 5-7 years old several family members and I would go on an annual, week long, summer trip to North Carolina each year. It was my third time going to North Carolina and the events that took place during that short week made our trip one of the most problematic but yet the best trip I have been on.

There comes a time where you say enough is enough, not a single person can juggle a job, school, and an alcoholic mother all at a time. Although, it used to be easier, honestly it did, before my father died. Well, of course I was quite young at the time and my mother wasn’t an alcoholic with a psychosis diagnosis; however he still knew exactly how to work out my problems.
