Just a tip, you can always leave the hospital. They aren't going to physically restrain you unless you've been psyche committed (huge liability). They aren't going to have the cops stop you either. You aren't under arrest or anything. The only fetters at the hospital are words. Just tell them firmly that you are leaving and head for the door.
Having to get six month to a year of beauticain school, costing thousands of dollars and then shell out $500 dollars for a state test to legally braid hair is bullshit. It's a barrier to people at the bottom getting into an industry that they are already qualified to do.
