I have a similar story but I did manage to get a degree.

Kicked out of a dysfunctional family situation at 16 with a 10th grade education, went in the military did 2 tours in Nam (20+ months). After I got home 2 years of homeless, drifting, drugs , alcohol.

Then got married, dysfunctional relationship that lasted 17 years but in that time managed to get a degree in Engineering Physics.

Nasty divorce, quit computing for 13 years and then tried to get back in but too much time had passed and couldn't keep up.

So here I am retired and still hacking, but loving it because I choose when and what I want to learn. No pressure, no deadlines, no politics, no bullshit.
