HELP! Braided Ficus dying

Help. I have a Braided Ficus and its clearly dying. The leaves are drying up. I was a j*ck*ss and had it on a window sill basically touching the window as well as 3 feet from a radiator for a good majority of the NE winter. I thought thas the cause, however, recently I noticed that their are little white globblets of gunk right where the leaf meets the stem.
I know I was a bad Braided Ficus tree owner but I've only had it for a few months and just didn't realize it until it was too late.... don't judge me......anyway, if anyone could give me some insight into what the heck is happening and most importantly how to save my plant!!,
thanks, todd

While Cereus gave good advice for the type of person who assumes it's the plants' fault for dying. In your case, I would suggest moving it away from the DRY heat source, and putting it somewhere with more moisture and good diffused light. Water when dry, and see if it comes back within a month or so.
If not, then do what Cereus said.
