i was sent to this 'help center' at 4 in the morning not told a word about having to stay for days on end. I was the only one not on any sort of drugs or medication and i watched as people peed their pants, slept for days, and walk around 'half drunk'. They ran out of granny underwear the first day i was there and all i wore was a green jumpsuit for 3 days that i never got to change. There is piss and sweat all over the crusty couches and all i did while i was there was eat and watch tv, but they were supposed to be helping me right? Dr. Oduwale, the psychiatrist, never spoke and when he did i could barley understand what he was saying to me.He always got my hopes up saying id leave in a day. Then when id go back to see him the next day, he would extend it everytime. He even accused one of the girls in there for being arrested for prostitution and drugs multiple times, but she insisted that never happened. Even her family testified. I was told by one nurse that i had a UTI and the next nurse that looked at my papers said different. i was nothing but confused the entire time and i felt more depressed being there. If it werent for my mom and family on the outside, i felt like i never would have gotten out no matter how behaved i was.
