I am a diabetic and they don’t check on my blood sugar properly. It took almost 4 months to get my diabetic meds.
When I slipped and fell on that wet floor, I went to the emergency room. The ER prescribed me some meds and said I sprained my back. The jail medical staff did not give me the meds the ER prescribed and my back still hurts.
I witnessed an assault on Anthony D who had his nose broken by Corporal B.D.
There is not the right amount of food on trays, and no trash bags for over a month. Also there are no chemicals to clean with for weeks at a time.
My family is hurt and sad. I have a 5 year-old son, who I miss dearly.
I’m not a bad person, I just made some bad choices. I’m ready to get healthy, put this behind me and move on with my life.
