My name is Kristi I am 33 years old and residing in Holiday Fl I was born and raised in Odessa Fl to a single mother and 3 older brothers I do not recall much of my childhood except that of chaos and distress I know growing up I always felt very alone and sad By the age of 13 I seemed to turn the other cheek from abuse neglect and abandonment to an angry abusive now self medicating teenager I left home when I was 13 running away for 2 years and coming back running away and coming back during these times I had used anything I could to change the way I felt By the age of 16 I was in and out of Juvenile detention for running away and truancy and placed in a foster home Although I was still very angry I commenced to do things that were suggested school work etc When I was 18 I reached adult hood and had no real clue how to live or be responsible I turned to the streets and did what most young girls on the street do after being introduced to crack cocaine I had my first child in my addiction and continued to live the life of self destruction with no intentions of doing so but simply had a monkey on my back that convinced me I was no better By this time I was in and out of jails and institutions for different drug related offenses and still unable unwilling and too hopeless to break the cycle So life as a con and drug addict continued for me until I was 25 yrs old I did manage to get a certification for cosmetology and was now able to do hair for a living outside of my other tricks and trades to get more drug money At this phase of my life I was desperately trying to reunifying with my mother
