Im gonna try and get this out there because I want people to be aware. This is my mother. This march, she was life-flighted to Hamot hospital. She had contracted a bacterial pneumonia. You see, my mother has no immune system because she had rheumatic fever, which in turn, gave her rheumatoid arthritis. So when she got sick, my family got worried. But usually things get better. They didn’t. Do you see the thing down her throat? Yeah, she has a respirator in. She couldn’t breathe on her own and they had to sedate her into a coma like state for weeks. The doctors up there said she had a 50/50 chance of surviving. This was the week of my birthday. We had no idea what caused this until the doctor started asking questions. Was your house ever flooded, was she in contact with black mold, etc? You see, we just moved into a house in January that was flooded at one point. We had someone come test the place, and the rates were off the charts…so much mold, so many kinds-black, foreign, harmful, common. The man wondered how we were all still alive. Meanwhile…my mom was recovering, thank god. She made it and is alive. The person we were renting the house from did nothing about any of this, in fact, he knew about the mold. He has other places he is renting out to other people with black mold, too. But we can’t even sue. no one will take our case because he’s a lawyer. And we don’t have the money. My mom is disabled, and my dad can’t find a job. The testing cost 3k. And we have to get a our possessions professionally cleaned and/or get new things and throw the old away which is about 10k. This man is getting away with harming people. He is having people pay to be harmed. This man needs to be stopped. My story needs to get out there.

reblog this for the message I dont care if Im not a demi blog, she is flawess and SMART.
Wait what did Disney do?
Demi Lovato left Disney Channel because she’s always struggled with depression and developed an eating disorder and I believe she left for rehab. Anyway, Disney Channel aired an episode of ‘Shake It Up’ where there’s a celebrity party and there’s a supermodel there and she says to the girls ‘I could just eat you up, well… if I ate’ and everyone around her laughs. Basically, taking an obvious dig at anorexia, which, on it’s own, is sick enough to joke about, let alone putting it on a kids show and after they lost one of their actress’ to the disease, as Demi says. They shouldn’t have been allowed to write such sick humour or air that episode, never mind still show it now. Disney Channel has really hit rock bottom.

I’m almost done with EMT school, and I can verify this 100%. We don’t give a shit what you’ve taken or how illegal it may be. We want to know what and how much so we can save your ass. Unless its directly related to a crime scene in some way, we don’t tell.
It makes me enraged and also deeply saddened that the police state has become so entwined with every aspect of our lives that people are afraid to tell the truth to people trying to render them with emergency care. We’ve broken ourselves.
Boost because everyone should know!!!
Signal boost. A friend of mine who has trained as a paramedic and used to run security for a very large (over 12,000 people) convention has said this same thing. No judgment, he just wants to save lives by making the right call for treatment.
This is one of the reasons I believe drugs should be legalized, actually. The stigma and fear of incarceration actually prevents people from getting help they need.
