“So they made I use the bathroom at the DVU. I looked at the situation and I told them I need to go to the hospital. I have a big hole in front of me. They came to conclusion. I told them to just take me to my cycle. They gave me a medical form. When they took me to my cycle, I got my cycle and that is the way I headed to the hospital.”
