Kaylee got straight As in school. She was a model student. She was in the National Honors Society.
Kaylee ended up leaving high school though, just halfway through finishing her junior year.
She was 17-years-old. So close to graduating and going on to college.

She had a heart arrhythmia which caused her to frequently miss out on school.
On top of that, she was working grueling hours at her job in order to save up all her money and buy a car for herself.

This all began to really add up and cause her a lot of stress and pressure.
Kaylee’s grades began to go downhill.
It’s understandable that Kaylee couldn’t keep up her record grades with her health issues and workload.
That’s a lot for anyone to have on their plate, let alone a teenager.
Kaylee though maybe she should take time off from her school.
She moved out of her Mom’s house.

When Kaylee had turned 18, her life looked a lot different than it had the year earlier.
Instead of having a wonderful academic record, she smoked a lot, drank a lot, and worked part-time at her job.

Her family had a history of addiction.
Keeping that in mind, Kaylee didn’t do anything she considered harder than drinking and smoking.
She certainly didn’t do drugs.
