“I just remember the initial anxiety and being very scared,” she admitted.
“The scared is me thinking that I don’t have anything,” she continued. “At that time, I didn’t even have a cell phone. I didn’t even have my driver’s license yet. I didn’t have a car. My mom and Tyler’s dad were kind of bad in addiction during that period of time also.”

She’s not independent. She’d probably never admit it, but I feel like sometimes she puts up with me.”
