Follow me tool behaving strangely

For some reason when I build my piece and use follow me around the line I drew the piece turns to the left and I dont know why its doing that.
In the first pic, the piece is lined up the way I want it.
in the second, once I use follow me, It goes crooked.

Follow me starts and finishes perpendicular to the first and last segments. So your path needs to correspond to that.

So my beginning segment need to be adjusted essentially?

Yes, the first and last need to be at right angle to the line on your image.
Often easiest to draw the curve slightly longer and chop the segment in half.

I had to re make the piece because despite solid inspector saying its a solid, sketchup thought otherwise and I couldnt do the subtractions that I needed to do.
