19 year old Kalina Orbillo joins the show to share her story from a young person’s perspective in early recovery. She describes what depression and anxiety can do to someone, and how she tried multiple times to take her own life. Clean and sober for just 4 months, Kalina takes us back to when she was in grade school, and started using cough syrup as a way to cope with her anxiety and feelings of not being good enough. She found prescription pills at age 11, marijuana at age 12, and continued on using drugs up until she made a decision to get clean just over 4 months ago.
