NaturalJ Posted May 23, 2010 Share Posted May 23, 2010 I am twenty years old and to put this story short (haven't gone to court yet), I pretty much got charged with a DUI and may be a felony. I am innocent as of right now, but I have never done anything against the law in my life before. I honestly don't want to do anything, and I don't want to keep my lifestyle the same. I run every other day, focus on school, and I organize my time around a planner. I eat healthy and rarely drink alcohol (maybe 2-3 times a year). Since this has happened and I spent a night in jail (traumatized because I'm the only one in my family to go to jail), I can't do anything. I can't exercise because I feel like I'm a crappy person and should just sit in a corner feeling bad for myself. This is very odd for me, as I am usually an optimist and encourage others. The thing is, I can't talk to anyone who isn't in my immediate family to protect myself until court is over. I have no friends to talk to at all. I am planning to go to med school in 2-3 years, and if I have a felony or a DUI on my record they can see it (background check). This little mistake (no one was hurt thankfully) might seriously cost me a huge chunk of my future. As a result my potential is going down. I went out and ate fast food today, I haven't exercised for the last 1-2 days since I was in jail, and I can't do anything productive. I feel worthless. I haven't slept for more than 2-3 hours a day since this has happened. My family is helping me out with the legal system and things are getting figured out, so it isn't like I'm unaware of what needs to be done. My mental health, motivation, and potential are dropping at an alarming rate. What do I do? :sad: Link to comment
