The first night in my cozy new room, I was http://www.cheapasicsrunningshoesgel.co.uk/so relieved. I felt I had gotten over the main hurdle of
A few days later, I started to totally disconnect. I deleted my Facebook profile first, shut down my phone and got a prepaid number, took all of the money out of my Chase bank
account and opened a new one.I wanted the time to make sense of my situation alone and have the space to comprehend it. I felt like sharing would force me to explain something I
hadn’t even figured out myself. It wasn’t normal to just quit school. But I never expected it to get so out of hand.
I spent the next week or so completely focused on myself. I got to know my new roommates, took walks around the neighbourhood and found my new favourite coffee shop a few blocks
But the more time that passed, the more people tried to find me.
I had given my new number to a few friends after I first left, but quickly stopped responding to them.
At the worst point, my new phone was buzzing off the hook -every 30 minutes. Eventually, a friend must have given my new number to my mom because she started calling, too.
I was constantly worrying, and the more they tried to contact me, the more I didn’t feel ready to tell them. The longer I ignored them, the worse it got.
When Mother’s Day arrived, I felt guilty for not calling my mom, but I still couldn’t bring myself to do it. I couldn’t face her yet.
I never turned on the TV and stayed immersed in my own world. I had only seen the missing-person flyers online.
About two weeks later, I heard a loud knock on my door.
“Are you Nayla Kidd?” one of the officers said sternly.
“Yes,” I replied.
“It’s the police. Can we come in?”
My jaw dropped to the ground.
“Yes,” I said sheepishly.
Three big cops came into my room.
“You know we’ve been looking for you non-stop for the past http://www.cheapasicsrunshoessale.co.uk/"three days?” said Detective Alex
Argiro, who had dark hair and a piercing stare.
At that point, I knew I needed to face reality. They told me since my mom wasn’t picking up the phone, it would be best for me to come to the station house with them.
“Can you give me five minutes to get ready to go?” I asked.
