It's not bigotry in your face. It's a shifting of expectations, a hyper focus on your other perceived faults, a sudden lack of tolerance for mistakes or room for understanding. Suddenly, you don't get the benefit of the doubt. 5:53 PM - 9 Dec 2019 from Washington, DC 687 Retweets 4,688 Likes Ari Drennen Follow @AriDrennen This blew up so I want to share what appears to be Lola's GoFundMe.

RETWEET THIS The Horrors of Socialized Medicine: A first hand experience A few days ago my stomach began to hurt. Thinking it would pass, I went home to try and rest for the night. A bit later I vomited. I thought that was the end of it. But for the rest of the night, I kept vomiting almost every 30-40 minutes. Even after my stomach was completely empty, I kept vomiting. Soon it was nothing but stomach fluid and bile. I tried to drink water to stay hydrated, but I kept throwing it up, no matter how hard I tried to keep it This could have easily cost me hundreds or even thousands in the US without insurance. But here in Taiwan I was able to receive speedy, quality care comparable to what I would have gotten in a US hospital for relatively small amount of money Given this experience, I no longer have a reason to fear or hesitate getting care in Taiwan should I ever need it.

Even after my stomach was completely empty, I kept vomiting. Soon it was nothing but stomach fluid and bile. I tried to drink water to stay hydrated, but I kept throwing it up, no matter how hard I tried to keep it down By 3am I had severe stomach cramps, my body kept trying to vomit even though there was nothing left. I was dizzy and light-headed. My symptoms showed no signs of abating At this point I had to seek medical treatment, I knew had to go to the hospital I wanted to avoid it. I had no idea how different Taiwanese hospitals would be, whether I would be able to find an English speaking doctor, or what it would cost me (my US health insurance has lapsed and I don't qualify for Taiwanese NHI) My Taiwanese roommate called a taxi and took me to the ER at NTU Hospital. I was immediately checked-in by an English speaking nurse. Within 20 minutes I was given IV fluids and anti-emetics. They took blood tests and did an ultrasound to ensure it wasn't gall stones or appendicitis. From there I was given a diagnosis: a particularly severe case of Acute Viral Gastroenteritis (aka the stomach flu). After about 3 hours on an IV I began to feel slightly better, my nausea disappeared and my stomach began to calm down. I was discharged with a prescription for anti-emetics and pain medication. Each day since lve gotten progressively better and am now pretty much back to normal The bill for the ER visit? US$80.00 Eighty. American. Dollars Out of pocket. Full cost. No discounts. No insurance. At one of the best hospitals in Taiwan. And if I had NHI, it would have been a fraction of that. This could have easily cost me hundreds or even thousands in the US without insurance. But here in Taiwan I was able to receive speedy, quality care comparable to what I would have gotten in a US hospital for relatively small amount of money.

Artist Jesse Braham accused Swift of stealing his lyrics for her hit song Shake It Off and asked for $42 million in damages Additional Links Taylor Swift was faced with a lawsuit over the lyrics to her song, Shake It U.S. District Judge Gail Standish Taylor Swift files counterclaim in groping lawsuit repeatedly quoted Swift lyrics while dismissing the lawsuit on Tuesday Off.' (Source: CNN) She wrote: At present, the court is not saying that Braham can never, ever, ever get his case back in court. But, for now, we have got problems, and the court is not sure Braham can solve them. As currently drafted, the complaint has a blank space - one that requires Braham to do more than write his name. And, upon consideration of the court's explanation in part two, Braham may discover that mere pleading band-aids will not fix the bullet holes in his case. At least for the moment, defendants have shaken off this lawsuit." <p><a href="http://monica-geller.tumblr.com/post/133064080073/me-as-a-judge" class="tumblr_blog" target="_blank">monica-geller</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>me as a judge</p></blockquote>
