#Repost from @junglebarbiejulia FULL STORY. On the night of August 10 2013 I went to DC for my birthday to go to “Park Place”, an upscale restaurant. Upon my arrival at the entrance, at 11:30pm, before going to stand in the very long line I went to ask a patrolling officer where a nearby restroom was and before I could utter the words, I was met with an elbow and a right punch to my face. I was instantly knock out. My police report (which has changed numerous times this year) say I was arrest and processed at 1:50 am which is 2 hours that I was unaccounted for. I was left on the floor and when I woke up I was bleeding in multiple places with drag marks on my toes, my wrist were cut by the cuffs, the back of my head and arms were lumpy. The officers wouldn’t tell me why I was in jail and I overheard them saying what should we charge her with? We can’t say domestic, we don’t know who she is with. After pleading and begging to go to the hospital, I was met with more hostility before they finally let me go to the hospital the next days upon my release I had a rape kit done because I don’t know any thing that happened to me while knocked out and it came back positive for semen. They sent messages from my phone while I was detained. Internal Affairs came and confiscated my clothing (they never returned them) and they stole my rape kit. As of today I am facing charges for fighting a bouncer outside of the Lima Club, I was never there and its 5 minutes away from Park driving, also 5 officers that responded after I punched the manager to I was apparently Mike Tyson because when I woke up in jail I had the strength and gumption to fight some more officers in there. When the video was requested both clubs said they lost them. They follow me and stalk my home to this day, I have caught DC police trying to get in my home when they thought I had left, even the Baltimore cops help protect them, one in the rape department even asked me out on a date while my face was still battered. I have been trying to tell my story on IG only to find that police officers or this hired by then have been spamming my hashtag #justiceforjulia with blasphemous pictures. Please share her story.

hellboundwitch:

MisSpelled is the tale of five very different young women who must learn to work together after they mysteriously acquire magical powers.

The girls will have to save themselves and each other from their own magical mistakes. A dark comedy with lives on the line, MisSpelled is a thrilling and comical journey for five young women who aren’t necessarily down for the ride. With a new dark presence growing in power, will they be able to save themselves from impending doom? They don’t know, but they can google it.

An exciting adventure with mystery, murder and magic! MisSpelled is not your typical witch show. With a diverse cast, comedy and thrilling twists — MisSpelled is something you need to see to believe. 

Y’all. Remember how excited we were about MisSpelled? “A new show about witches? Witches of colour, even?? And it’s not even my birthday, or Halloween!!”

Well, they’ve posted everything they’ve got to youtube — a promologue, and four episodes — and now they’re running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the rest of the series. If it’s not successful, then we don’t get any more of the show. Which would suck.

I am asking you guys — begging you, even — to go support the Kickstarter if you can. If every one of my followers pledged $20, then they’d be funded immediately. But even if you can only spare $5, that still gets you thanks on the website and a download of the music from the show!

There are several $12 Charm Bag Tiers, each based around a different character. The charm bags include a tarot card with the character on it (you can see an in-progress sketch of some of the art for the cards in the photoset), a bloodstone, a spell written by the character, and some charms.

And for $20, you can pick a charm bag, get thanked on the site, download the music and the first season after its finale.

Even if you can’t pledge, signal boost this. Go watch the show on youtube. Tell everyone! We have 19 days and counting to make this a success.

Fly my pretties~

hellboundwitch = queen.

MAKE THIS AWESOME WOC WITCH SHOW A FULLY REALIZED THING Y’ALL IM BEGGING YOU

I watched this and it was neat!

need couch urgent Seattle rape victim

transhousingnetwork:

Hey all, I’m Jackie a 33 yr old disabled trans woman in Seattle. I have a set income from disability, so its been difficult to rent in time. 

I was raped by a guy I had been seeing two days ago and had been kicked out of my friend’s place. He can’t handle the emotional turmoil. I spent yesterday in the hospital and found a hostel for a few nights to find out that they’re unwilling to work with me because my driver’s license doesn’t match my gender. I stayed there last night and am desperately trying to find a place. 

I do not want to go back to sex work, so this is really a last ditched effort. I’m quiet, clean, and normally become fast friends with roommates. I can pay a maximum of $550 monthly, but open minded to any arrangement that’s safe and fair.  

Seriously, I have no expectations but I’d be extremely grateful. I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

IMPORTANT NEWS RE TRAMADOL

teland:

teland:

(This is Jack posting for Te because she’s too exhausted, physically and mentally, at the moment.)

If you or someone you care about or hell, even just kinda know, takes tramadol as part of their pain management, and you (or they) are in the United States, this information is CRITICALLY URGENT.

As of the 18th of August, 2014 — that’s just four days from now, two of them the weekend when doctors’ offices are closed — tramadol will become a Schedule IV drug under United States law. In laypeople’s terms, this means that tramadol, which is not a narcotic and has never before been treated like one going all the way back to when it first received FDA approval, will be treated as if it IS a dangerous, addictive narcotic.

Worse, some doctors’ offices have started treating tramadol as if it is already legally a controlled substance even though the change has not yet taken effect.

Worse, some of these offices are implementing the change without notifying patients of the change in policy regarding a perfectly safe medication many of us have been taking daily for years.

Worse, some of these offices are pre-emptively denying refills to patients who have already been taking tramadol issue-free for years, essentially just to prioritize covering their own asses over providing their patients with adequate care. In these cases there are either additional hoops for the patient to jump through, or the office is going to add tramadol to the list of drugs they ‘just don’t prescribe’ there because patients with chronic pain should be under the care of a pain specialist… and having the patient get no pain management while they’re on a waiting list to see a pain specialist (if there even are any in their area who take their insurance) is somehow seen as acceptable.

We don’t know how many medical practices will go the latter route, and won’t until next week at the earliest, unless they’re actually communicating appropriately with their patients. But we already know that many U.S. doctors have been making pain management increasingly difficult (and dangerous, because policies that make medication-hoarding necessary also make abuse more likely) for patients who do need actual narcotics.

So. Anybody in the USA who takes tramadol? Make sure you fill any refills you can ASAP. Then call your prescriber’s office and ask if they have implemented or will be implementing any changes in policy wrt tramadol. If the person you’re talking to says something like “not that I’ve heard,” mention how you’ve heard about the change in DEA classification and ask them to check and make sure.

(Funnily enough, while I was typing this, another of Te’s doctors called back and agreed to take over writing her tramadol scrip since the other office was being so unreasonable. Long story but you can guess the gist. Yay for instant karma? May all of you get your own tramadol woes resolved with no more than 3 days of pain, stress and frustration.)

What really chaps my ass about this (other than everything), is that calling 911 and complaining about severe, debilitating pain and then allowing myself to be carted to the hospital via ambulance — which is, in fact, something that my so-called primary care physician suggested I do, through a proxy, the coward never ONCE agreed to speak to me, even over the phone — when I pointed out that her refusal to fill a prescription that she’d been filling for me for over a year was going to make it impossible for me to, well, *function* —

Quick quiz: Why *are* health care costs so high in the U.S., kids?

— well. If I *had* let myself get rolled right up on into that E.R., it would’ve been almost embarrassingly easy to roll right out again with oxy, vicodin, dilaudid, demerol — whatever.

Easier, in fact, than it would’ve been to get tramadol — because, hey, my pain was severe, after all. 

I know; I’ve been through similar sorts of things before.

Not a *lot* of those drugs, mind — just enough to, oh, say, wind up with a baboon-sized monkey on my back.

Or roll right out onto the street and sell it to someone who would sell it to someone *else* with a *gorilla*-sized monkey on *their* back.

Or… you get the gist.

Quick quiz: Guess which drug doesn’t have a street profile or an abuse profile in the U.S.?

If you guessed tramadol; you’ve been paying attention.

At this point, my advice to all of you which chronic illnesses which require pain management care is to do the following:

  1. Get a pain management specialist if you *possibly* can. These people are life-savers. Get on the waiting list for them. Get on the waiting list to *be* on the waiting list. Do it now.
  2. If that’s not possible, shop around for rheumatologists. Yes, even if your arthritis is mild, or if you “just” have fibromyalgia. The simple fact of the matter is that rheumatologists are the unofficial pain management specialists of our fucked-up country. Not all of them are any good, and many of them will make you jump through hoops,  too, but? All of their patients are in pain. They understand it *better* than, sad to say, even many of the best GPs. Let your first act upon seeing your GP — even if your GP seems great — be getting that GP to refer you to the rheumatologist who got the best reviews in your area. Make the appointment. Go to the appointment. You can never have too many doctors familiar with your need for pain management.
  3. Study what sort of nursing/nurse-advocates are available in your area. Don’t know what I mean? Check this out. Among other things, the nurses here will be pit bulls for patients, cutting through a lot of bullshit and red tape when doctors are being pricks. Sometimes? It still doesn’t work. But allies still make things better.

Now, I hate to fucking say this. I HATE TO FUCKING SAY THIS, AND YOU WILL NOTE THAT I AM NOT PHRASING THIS AS ADVICE.

But.

There are some medicines you must take exactly as directed and exactly on-schedule, like antibiotics. In an ideal world, we would be able to treat *all* medications that way.

But we don’t live in that world.

And I, personally, will always let myself hurt on some days when I can afford it — if it means I can bank a painkiller or two.

Just in case.

Just. In. Case.

Just in case of bullshit *exactly* like this. I’m still sick as a dog and exhausted and just plain *beaten* with pain from having gone without *adequate* amounts of tramadol for the past few days — but I damned well had a few.

Because paranoia pays.

lyndez:

I decided that my circumstance was severe enough to start a gofundme campaign. Please take a moment to read my current situation.

 I’m Ashley. I’m a 20 year old animation student in Atlanta Georgia. When I started college almost 4 years ago, I thought my time here would fly by easily. Unfortunately, during the winter break of my first year at SCAD, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The numbness in my feet and hands meant that I had to drop art classes and take lectures instead. I’ve accepted that I have to get through school at my own pace and that “graduating on time” doesn’t really have a meaning for me. 

Since my diagnosis, I’ve lived in constant stress over bills. I have no health insurance. I do not come from a wealthy family. I’ve had trouble keeping any minimum wage job because of my health. My parents still receive my hospital bills from several years ago and they’ve been slowly paying them off and deferring my student loan payments. 

Recently, I’ve experienced an attack similar to a heart attack. Considering my age and the fact that I haven’t had any sort of treatment for my MS in months, the doctors at the ER agreed it was more of a musculoskeletal problem than anything affecting my heart. Regardless, many tests were run on me during the countless hours I was at that hospital and I fear the bills that the trip to the ER have created. 

My girlfriend and I are both unemployed and I am too weak and unable to provide any sort of work for money. 

So I’m here asking for help.

More information about my situation and how to help can be found on my Gofundme campaign.

Hey guys! I would like you all to meet Bella. At 4 PM on July 19, 2014, the Humane Society of Mercer County, Pennsylvania received a call about an abandoned dog staked in the woods and left to die. When responders arrived, they discovered Bella, an emaciated boxer-beagle mix, wearing a collar made of knotted fabric and a tree branch. The collar had been tied so tightly around her neck that it had cut through an entire layer of muscle around her neck. After removing it, they also realized the wound was maggot infested and requires immediate attention. The responders fed her and took her to the vet, where Bella was sedated while she fights the infection. After the infection is contained, she will have to endure a surgery to have the muscles in her neck properly reattached.
The town of Mercer, along with Sarah, the wonderful individual who brought Bella to my attention, are raising money to help save Bella’s life and eventually find her a forever home. With the help of community member Carolyn Schumacher and the Humane Society president Sheryl Giles, the community is hoping to raise the funds needed to cover Bella’s medical treatment. So far, estimated costs for surgery and recovery will be $3,500, and only $65 dollars has been raised so far. I know many people on tumblr don’t have a lot of spare change to donate, but even fifty cents will get Bella closer to her goal, and any amount is appreciated.

Check in at TheMidwifeIsIn.tumblr.com if you have any other questions.

There is also the Abortion Pill (Mifepristone).  It can be taken up to 9 weeks (but is most effective up to 7 weeks and check the laws in your state). It is comparable to a miscarriage and after getting the intial dosage from your medical service provider, you take the rest at home and go through the process at home.

This is super important, valuable information that I think many people don’t know. Also, when you go to an abortion clinic (I at least know this is true for Planned Parenthood) there’s a counseling meeting where you discuss the alternatives with a doctor and sign a consent form saying that abortion is what you really want. A lot of people who oppose abortion will want to tell you that abortion clinics and reproductive health centers will try to convince you to have the abortion, but that’s just not true. (I mean, only 3% of Planned Parenthood’s services are abortions. Family planning and community health centers like Planned Parenthood are often more concerned with prevention and awareness and other aspects of health. They’re more interested in helping you have options than they are in only giving you the one.)

Nor is it true that any medical center will throw the embryo away in a dumpster after the procedure. I’m sure none of you really thought that, but slander is a vicious thing that spreads and becomes true in the eyes of those who want to believe it because it fits into their agenda.

Additionally: know your rights. When I worked at Planned Parenthood, I learned that protesters are not allowed to be in front of the building or in the parking lot. They have to stay on the sidewalk, further away from the building. They are not supposed to try to convince you not to go into the building, nor can they physically block you from going in or follow you inside. You have to be let in by someone already in the building, which means that any appointment you have there - counseling, a check-up, a mammogram, an abortion, a testing - will be confidential and safe.

This is vital information everyone with a uterus+ovaries should know, whether you think you’ll ever need it or not. Even if you think “personally I would *never* have an abortion” — because there are too many things that you aren’t thinking about (rape, cancer, accidents, infections) that may turn abortion from “a choice for *other* women” to “literally life-saving for *me*.”

PLEASE HELP/SIGNAL BOOST!!! IT IS AN EMERGENCY.
On June 14th I left/got kicked out of my parents home.My parents are mentally/emotionally/verbally abusive, and I was having major panic attacks every day, sometimes more than once.I have Autism and while it is a struggle at times, I have always paid for my horses by myself. Taken care of vet fees, done their feet myself to save money…
In January, 2014, my family and I moved to a farm. So since then I have been keeping my horses on my property.
Yesterday (July 14th) I had to leave. My horses are still there…
I have a place for my thoroughbred to go until I get back on my feet, I just need to find a way to trailer her there.
However, I still need to find a place to keep my Paint mare, Pippin. Full board averages between $400-475 here. I can’t do self board because I no longer have a car (I was using my moms…) and would not have a way to bring hay or grain to the barn.I’m desperately trying to get my horses off the property as I fear my parents may do something drastic (i.e. give them away), and I’m asking for help…I figure it’s going to cost anywhere from $100-$150 to trailer Shylo, my Thoroughbred, to Victoria to the place where she’ll be staying.
I’ve set my “goal” at $550 because that will supply the $400-475 for Pippins board, and also put some (if not pay for in entiriety) for Shylo’s trailering.Any bit helps! I hate doing this, but I know without my horse(s) my mental health will seriously decline.After this first month I’ll be able to pay for my horses again no problem, it’s just a matter of finding a place to rent, finding a place to board, and getting everything in place and getting horses settled in. My horses are first and foremost.Huge thanks to anyone who donates! Every cent helps!!! I will be sending out little doodles of peoples horses for every donation! Just PM me and let me know you donated and I’ll get it done as soon as possible!!!
Here’s the link: http://www.gofundme.com/blv4nc
I’d really appreciate signal boosts. This hurts my pride doing this, but I’d rather have no pride and still have my horses. 

Hey guys, this is my friend Alex. I was visiting her place the past couple days, and was there while two arguments went down yesterday, the last of which resulting in needing to help her move all her stuff and animals out of there.
Her parents are very emotionally abusive, I have witnessed it in person and the aftermath many times previously, hearing her explain through tears/panic attacks what happened. 
She needs to get her horses out of there, and just started a full time job so she will be able to afford board in a couple weeks. She just needs some help in the meantime to get them out of there and get back on her feet.
Please help, every little bit helps. If every one of my followers donated even $1, she’d have enough. If you can’t donate, please signal boost.

On June 14th I left/got kicked out of my parents home.
My parents are mentally/emotionally/verbally abusive, and I was having major panic attacks every day, sometimes more than once.

I have Autism and while it is a struggle at times, I have always paid for my horses by myself. Taken care of vet fees, done their feet myself to save money…

In January, 2014, my family and I moved to a farm. So since then I have been keeping my horses on my property.

Yesterday (July 14th) I had to leave. My horses are still there…

I have a place for my thoroughbred to go until I get back on my feet, I just need to find a way to trailer her there.

However, I still need to find a place to keep my Paint mare, Pippin. 

Full board averages between $400-475 here. I can’t do self board because I no longer have a car (I was using my moms…) and would not have a way to bring hay or grain to the barn.

I’m desperately trying to get my horses off the property as I fear my parents may do something drastic (i.e. give them away), and I’m asking for help…

I figure it’s going to cost anywhere from $100-$150 to trailer Shylo, my Thoroughbred, to Victoria to the place where she’ll be staying.

I’ve set my “goal” at $550 because that will supply the $400-475 for Pippins board, and also put some (if not pay for in entiriety) for Shylo’s trailering.

Any bit helps! I hate doing this, but I know without my horse(s) my mental health will seriously decline.
After this first month I’ll be able to pay for my horses again no problem, it’s just a matter of finding a place to rent, finding a place to board, and getting everything in place and getting horses settled in. My horses are first and foremost.

Huge thanks to anyone who donates! Every cent helps!!! I will be sending out little doodles of peoples horses for every donation! Just PM me and let me know you donated and I’ll get it done as soon as possible!!!

I’d really appreciate signal boosts. This hurts my pride doing this, but I’d rather have no pride and still have my horses. 

Hey guys, this is my friend Alex. I was visiting her place the past couple days, and was there while two arguments went down yesterday, the last of which resulting in needing to help her move all her stuff and animals out of there.

Her parents are very emotionally abusive, I have witnessed it in person and the aftermath many times previously, hearing her explain through tears/panic attacks what happened. 

She needs to get her horses out of there, and just started a full time job so she will be able to afford board in a couple weeks. She just needs some help in the meantime to get them out of there and get back on her feet.

Please help, every little bit helps. If every one of my followers donated even $1, she’d have enough. If you can’t donate, please signal boost.

We have to be the biggest promoters of our own stories.  Can’t  depend on CNN to promote inspiring black stories. Just wanted to share this story.

“Graduating from university is normally an occasion for a family get-together.
And this was certainly a big celebration for the Ogunsanya quadruplets who were handed their well-deserved degrees from the same university on the same day.

The 23-year-old quads, identical sisters and the oldest by four minutes, Toks and Temi Ogunsanya, and identical brothers, Tobi and Tolu, graduated from Warwick University with Master Degrees.



And there was not a jot of sibling rivalry as all four have landed jobs in the City already.

Toks graduated with anMEng in manufacturing and engineering and Temi, Tobi and Tolu all gained an MSC in management from Warwick Business School.

‘The fact we all chose to study at the University of Warwick was a natural decision,’ says Tobi, who thinks a bit of sibling rivalry is essential for success.

‘We are a close-knit family and were all attracted by the strength of the courses on offer.

‘We all gravitated to similar courses because we’ve always been interested in business and management and our father is a successful businessman in Nigeria.’



The quads, originally from Lagos, Nigeria, have been living in the UK since the age of seven when they began boarding schools. Since leaving university they have all landed top city jobs.

Toks is due to start working for RBS in London later this year, Temi, who interned at Santander over the summer, has been offered a permanent position with the bank, and Tolu is due to start working for one of the ‘Big 4’ accountancy firms in the City.

‘Our parents are four times as proud of us,’ added Tobi, who is mulling over two offers from two major City firms.

‘They’ve supported us financially and have encouraged us all the way - without their help we wouldn’t be here today.’ “

"My name is Michael Hunter. I was diagnosed with leukemia in June 2013 &amp; was told on June 11, 2014 that I only have a few months left to live if I can’t find a donor. Please help me with my biological family or a donor match! I was born in Columbus, OH 3/1/1985 at Doctor’s North Hospital and given the name Christopher Brown. Please share"
Michael is a friend, I’m asking that you all take the time to share this. He desperately needs a bone marrow donor and there is very limited number of African American donors. Without a donor Michael is going to die.
Michael was adopted and does not know his birth family. We know he has a half brother but have no information about him.
He does not specifically need an African American Donor but because of all of the things that factor into finding a match (blood type, dna tissue etc.) , someone of similar descent is more likely to be a closer match.
If anyone knows anything about Michael’s birth family or if you would like to see if you are a match, please privately message me. I can put you in touch with him and his caregivers directly!
We hope through spreading awareness we can either find his birth family whom he does not know or find a donor match. Michael lives in the Cincinnati, OH area. Please dont just like this or scroll past. Please share this! You could save his life!

BOOST. Its so hard for Black people to find donors.
