WHO NEEDS A FUCKING ALARM CLOCK WHEN YOUR IMMIGRANT PARENTS ARE ON THE PHONE WITH SOMEONE FROM THEIR NATIVE COUNTRY
Hi everyone. As some of you may know, my mother is still recovering from a serious traffic accident that occurred in late March this year, which totalled her car and left her hospitalised for almost two months. She can walk unassisted now, but still suffers from an incredible amount of pain due to her injuries even with pain medication. On top of this, my mum’s doctor is sending her in for more scans, because he’s worried that her spinal fracture may not have healed properly.
Despite all this, the Transport Accident Commission has made the decision to stop paying for her continued physical rehabilitation, medication, as well as occupational therapy, psychologist, as well as consultations with her pain management specialist, all of which our medical insurance doesn’t cover.
My family is currently working to appeal this decision, but in the meantime this will be costing us upwards of $750 a week, which we just cannot afford. I’m starting a part time job this week, but what I’ll make will barely help cover transport costs, and I am just massively stressed out about this.
I wouldn’t normally do this, and I’m still somewhat reluctant to bep asking for donations, as straight up taking from people is something that doesn’t sit well with me, but several friends have encouraged me open donations, as have some anons who’ve read about my situation. Right now I don’t know what else to do.
Click here to donate, or visit the button on my blog. I ask that you only donate if you have money to spare, and literally any amount is appreciated from the depths of my heart.
Thank you ♥

Medical Examiner In Zimmerman Trial Sues For $100M, Claims Prosecution Threw Case
In a bombshell allegation, Florida medical examiner Dr. Shiping Bao (pictured) claims that Florida state prosecutors were biased against Trayvon Martin and purposely threw the case, and he is suing the state for $100 million, reports WFTV.com.
According to Bao, the medical examiner, state attorney’s office, and Sanford Police Department all felt that Martin “got what he deserved.” Bao also claims that he received the strong, though subtle, message not to speak on certain things:
“He was in essence told to zip his lips. ‘Shut up. Don’t say those things,’” said Bao’s legal counsel, legendary Attorney Willie Gary.
Bao’s allegations come swiftly on the heels of him being fired from his position as associate medical examiner.
Volusia County released a letter on Tuesday, stating that Bao was fired last week. Spokesman Dave Byron declined to give a reason for Bao’s termination, citing “county standard personnel practices,” reports CBS News.
you go medical examiner Bao, you go!
