2010 – I was indigent and had $20 placed on account. They took the entire amount then said I wasn’t qualified for indigent status. I received no toilet paper or sanitary napkins for over 3 weeks. I had to tear up a towel to use during my menstrual cycle and they threatened to write me up for destruction of county property.

The mental health doctor put me on 100 mg of Zoloft. My bladder quit working and I went days without peeing. I was finally taken to the medical center and told tge dosage of Zoloft should not have been so high and it was causing my bladder to contract.

2014 – The water is ice cold and the temperature in the dorm is freezing. I had to wash my hair in the sink because the water is too cold to get up under. It’s always like that. The floors are extremely slippery, one little wet spot and people fall. I myself have fallen several times and seen many others fall also. No cleaning supplies are given out to clean and sanitize the dorm.
