Dateline Cruz: I was diagnosed with back injury and anklosing spondilitis. I resisted the spinal shots they wanted to give me, but I was in 24 hour unrelenting pain. The first shot went ok but did not give me pain relief. The 2nd almost killed me. When the doctor put the needle in I immediately knew something was wrong…then he rammed it home and I felt like I was struck by lightning. I screamed but he didn’t stop.

When I got back to the prison and checked in, I told them I was losing bladder control and wasn’t able to feel my legs fully. They dismissed my concerns then and continued to do so later.

As I found out 6 months later, I had 5 out of 6 symptoms that should have gotten me to an emergency room. I was incontinent but they gave me no diapers, my legs would give out and I was frequently falling. One time I hit my head and was unconscious for an hour. I described my symptoms as *sitting on a Weber BBQ*. The provider refused me a wheelchair, lay-in food tray, pain pills, or diapers.

As with most medical issues acquired in prison, I’ll have to wait for treatment until I go home. Cruelty thy name is prison.

RN Nurse on Lumley Gets Our Vote

RN Nurse on Lumley Gets Our Vote

As the best health care professional this quarter. I watched NURSE D’ANTONIO (forgive me if I spelled that wrong), work with mentally challenged inmates on B yard, with compassion and understanding. She never talked down to them or treated them with contempt, nor did she change when helping an educated inmate….all were equal to her. This prison is fortunate to have an RN of this caliber!

Update on Tiffany

Update on Tiffany

Sources close to Tiffany said she continued to have severe seizures at Carlos. They said recently that Tiffany was suffering terrible pain and inflammation at her mastectomy site. She showed her friends, so there would be witnesses, of her horribly disfigured top surgery.

Finally, she couldn’t take it anymore and walked to medical, passed the electronic door, down the hall to the provider, and raised her shirt at him, and said, “LOOK WHAT YOU’VE DONE TO ME!”. The provider immediately called 911 and she was taken to the hospital. Reportedly, she spent an entire week there.

Let’s all pray for Tiffany.

Shortcuts in Medical?

Getting needed medication when you're in prison isn't an easy process at the best of times. You have to report to pill call at a specific time. You line up with everyone else needing to get their meds, standing outside in the weather. Rain? Stand in line. Heat? Stand...

    I was in prison for 17years and have seen so many people die in front of me It’s traumatic and I have PTSD from it. Medical never helped me for my heart problems, never took tests, just told me I have congested heart failure and didn’t do anything for me. I saw it every day. They never helped us, made us always feel like we were lying and would send us away. Making people work in the kitchen who have scoliosis, heart problems, people who have AIDS and Hep C as well as other STDs. There’s rat poop on our kitchen food, birds all over our trays that we eat off of making us all even sicker, black mold everywhere. We can’t breathe in our cells due to all the mold and crud in our walls, vents, and coolers. They are trying to kill us – they don’t care and the money they get for us does not go to us. There is so much more.

    I’ve been sexually attacked by the CO police officers twice. I have my whole life to account for in there and I’m surprised I made it out after 17years. They have medium inmates on max yards getting assaulted and they don’t care. They say it is due to no room. They also send you to max yard as punishment without ever getting tickets. It’s all retaliation. They will ruin your life if you don’t do what they want. They make up lies, yep the sergeants, if you refuse to work because you don’t feel good. I heard a Sergeant say “Oh you’re going to hurt yourself” then cuff her up and put her in isolation when the girl never said it. I’ve seen it all, believe that.
