That makes therapy sound like not such a bad thing. Kind of like Cheers, but without any of the comedy. So more like Wings, we guess ...
Security Is Way More Intensive Than You Think
Security is pretty tight. You even get random strip searches. "They strip you down to your underwear and check your suitcase, as if something is going to magically appear there even though they checked them a few days before," Nicole says. We assume "suitcase" is a terrible euphemism. But at least prisoners have unfettered access to a shitcan, even if it's right in their cell, in front of God and everybody. Not so for the chronically sad.
"Someone had to unlock the bathroom and stand outside of it," Nicole says. This led to some pretty desperate measures, some of which backfired spectacularly. "One of my roommates, I noticed her on the security camera hovering over the sink one night, and I didn't know what she was doing," Nicole says. "It turned out she was peeing in it to avoid being watched in the bathroom."
"It's privacy or a clean place to wash your hands. I made the right choice."
