An overview of how I came to be

HELLLOOO. My names Tyler. I am 19 years old living with my mom and grandparents in California. I guess I should start with how I've come to be the person I am today. My dad was addicted to drugs until I was 12. I'm not quite sure what drugs he was addicted to, but the most my mom would give me is that he is addicted to drugs. I assume they were pretty heavy, because the stories that I was told weren't pretty. At one point, he drove to Bakersfield, completely stoned, and ran around the town naked asking for food and money for 4 days, until the police caught him. He had gone 4 days without food, but he apparently had plenty of booze to sustain himself. Fast forward in time about 5 years, when I was born. I guess I was an accident, because my dad ran out on my mom the second he heard she was pregnant. I haven't seen him since.
