That day that changed my life forever.
My name is Jessii. I am an average 20 year old young woman. I now live a happy and joyful life but just 6 months ago I was homeless and addicted to methamphetamine. I stared out with weed when I was still living with my mom. There was some complications between my mom and I and I ended up getting kicked?out of her house. I found myself alone with nowhere to go. When I met someone who introduced me to meth I lost a lot of weight in a short amount of time. I almost overdosed several times. One day I had had enough of the wayward living, so I went to MECCA (a drug treatment facility)- I was there for a while. I now live in a beautiful house and have 180 days sober. And I am the happiest I have ever been because I am sober.
