The Hardest Thing I've Experienced

What is the Hardest Thing You've Ever Experienced?

In my 17 (almost 18 years) of life I've experience a lot of hard things. Some things I feel as if no one should ever have to go through in the entirety of their lives. That being said choosing the hardest thing was fairly easy. Let me take you back 5 years ago.

My stomach drops as I see the cops pull up and park in front of my house. I know it's going to be one of those days. I cannot resist going to school now. After all we all know it's never a good idea to run from a cop. A knock on the door and I quickly brush my hair, throw on some clothes and walk out the door to the cop car. He gives me some advice and I just nod my head. As I arrive to class after checking in at the office I can feel everyone's stares as I gather my things.

That was a typical day for me. If i was blessed enough to not have a cop show up at my door I fought with my parents every morning. Try as they might they couldn't even drag me out the door. And when I say drag I literally mean physically drag me out the door. I was strong enough and big enough that even when they both tried to drag me out the door they couldn't do it. 

It didn't take me long to be truant and facing going to court. No matter how many times I tried to explain that I was having serious issues, no one really understood. It took me a trip to a mental hospital before my mom finally decided I wasn't just being stubborn. 

Even after my mom understood that something was going on I still struggled going to school and eventually left the public school I went to and started an online school. My problems with my anxiety and depression persisted and eventually I dropped out of school altogether. 

Currently I have started some therapy for my 'issues' and I hope to go back to school maybe next year and get my life back on track.
