This is actually pretty important
very important information
If you choose to go to a hospital, it’s incredibly important that you DO NOT SHOWER. It’s all you’re going to want to do after, but you just cannot. For evidence’s sake and more accurate test results-it only helps you so much more in the end. also, the medications are free, I believe (don’t quote me on that, that night was a blur). They also have a nurse check you out to make sure you’re okay and don’t have any STD’s and aid all the damages. There’s a whole kit. But, they always go by how you feel. You can leave whenever you want to, if you don’t want to stay there the whole time-it’s okay to leave or ask them to stop something. If you’re not comfortable asking or just too shaken, the advocate/crisis counselor helps you. Even if you’re cold, they will hunt someone down to get you a blanket and stuff, or just water-anything. Mind you, they do this even if you don’t involve the police.
