Afraid to tell her parents and unsure of how else to cope with her feelings, Megan decided to try to escape her pain. A friend showed her how to get high using inhalants. Megan and a group of friends began "huffing" together often. But Megan's friends soon learned something terrifying: Huffing can kill you. So, they wisely quit. Despite this scary news, Megan kept huffing alone.. always hit her mom when she was using.. That's something that nobody should ever do. Then, rock bottom got even lower. The next night, she fought with her brother. He said she was an embarrassment to the family. Megan hit rock bottom one night. High on inhalants and other drugs, she rode on top of a friend's car, fell off, and got a concussion That’s when Megan changed her life around but it was the hardest think she could do!<br />
