Hello, Mckenzie!

No taking away from your experience, but something similar happened to me a long time ago.

In a too crowded emergency room, I was treated terribly and handcuffed because I had cuts all over my body. I was suicidal, and this seemed to make the nurses very angry with me. They shipped me off to a“safe” room that was full of people. The trash cans were full of urine, as were the walls, because they didn’t let anyone leave. I was there for 12 hours. They didn’t even let me say goodbye to my parents when they were made to leave.

I tried to lie about why I was there, but the proof was all over my arms. I was admitted and the place never got any better. I was worse when I left after 2 weeks.

This happens to a lot of people in the same situation, as it’s a terrible thing.

I hope you are doing better now.
