    8 Years

    I remeber how it started. I saved up $2700 dollars to move out and go to college. My parent in need of financial support asked me to stay at home. They assured me it was just for six months. I went to college and worked 40 hours a week and collected financial aid. It never seemed...

    The euphoria that I once felt about coming out
