(GoFundMe)   While a dirty lurker, this wonderfulTFette could use some help right now (you may know her from FB). Anyone who has dealt with illness or insurance or government BS can relate. So, if you can spare some change she could really use a bit   (gofundme.com) divider line 53

fark NO.  I need my own kickstarter for medical expenses.  But I'm not lame enough to ask strangers for it.

Forego your morning coffee for a day, or sponsoring some new attention whore to TotalFark.

This is kinda ironic..

What exactly is your disease? Wheelchair bound could just mean you're really fat.

I have free subscriptions, maybe I should offer this person one so she can beg us in person for money.

Not really.  It was also difficult for Nora Desmond to pass the baton.

Agreed.

Such anger.

I hope she improves! I get paid on Friday and bookmarked this! Everyone I've talked to that knows her says she's an awesome, nice, funny person.

I believe the term you're looking for is "bitter".  As in "bitter" that my husband has primary progressive MS and will be in a wheelchair forever in a few years and that means I have to work a shiatty job for insurance and hopefully get medicaid or disability.
Yes, I see that she's having a rough time with expenses.  But I don't see the need to ask the internet for help.  Especially so vaguely.

If you read carefully you'll see that she didn't ask. Someone else asked on her behalf. But don't let that stop you.
 
2014-06-24 11:22:47 AM
Wait, maybe I'm confused.  Do you guys know this person? Or the person who posted it? Because then I understand your concern.

That's terrible and you have my sympathy. A close friend of mine is struggling with MS and it's truly heartbreaking.

Having said that, this person didn't come asking for help. If you had looked, you'd see she didn't nor is the type to ask. So perhaps dial it back to an 8, huh?

Best wishes to you and your husband.

People get desperate and need help no matter what it takes to do it.

I'm very sorry for your situation. That sounds awful.

But don't sh*t on a sick person's call for help.

AND SHE DIDN'T ASK.

 She sounds like she legitimately needs help.



Just walk away from the thread if it pisses you off so much.

I'm so sorry. A loved one with MS is truly an incredibly unfortunate thing to have to deal with.

La Molecule (Also known as KK13 for the old schoolers) is the Manda that is listed as the creator.

La Molecule, is this someone we've ever seen around here to know if we recognize her? Or is she purely a lurker?

Yes. People know her, mostly from Facebook though.

And really, I am so sorry about your husband's MS situation. I can't imagine how awful that is,

You'd think after the KFC thing, people would be more skeptical about just donating to a person they don't know.  Unless she's someone you know....which she could be.  I haven't figured that out yet.  I'm confused as to why this post gets sympathy when another gets crapped on for being a fake.
Sorry for the negativity, the bitter came out more than intended in the text.

It's cool. Your situation seems stressful and I bet your feelings on the matter are on your sleeves. Understandable :)

Ah, that explains the vagueness.  It seemed odd to not note her condition in the kickstarter.  I thought someone was being trolly mctroll due to the KFC thing coming out.

She's a straight up lurker, TheSoundOfSnow.

I didn't submit this thread because people tend to be assholes about lurkers and fundraisers.

Her health issues are hers to discuss but it's not good.

I pay for my own TF now since I'm TFWashedUp but sure, ironic.

People do know who she is and know its not fake.  Not to mention its for a pretty specific cause that is a huge burden.

OMG KFC IS DICKS (don't care)

OMG MY BUSINESS NEEDS A NEW DELIVERY TRUCK (don't care)

Sorry for your situation, but have some compassion.  There isn't anything wrong with helping folks in bad situations.

Okay, thanks for the info. I don't do that whole Facebook TFark thing so it wasn't a name I recognized. Just wondered if it was someone I would have known by another name here, but it's not familiar off the top of my head. Hope she gets the help she needs.

I imagine someone who like Alex and wanted to keep the fundraiser from stalling. I'm just the one who made the GoFundMe to help her out when I found out she was having problems.

Donated.

I don't know this person, but Meow Said the Dog vouched for her.  That is good enough for me.  People need help with a real problem?  I'll help.

Hey now, talula had a moment of anger because her family is in a stressful medical situation, too. She apologized and I think this is just a sore spot for her. It happens. She seems to have come around :)

I wish I had to money to donate, but I'm looking at 200K+ of my own medical stuff to deal with.

I will say, though, if the ill person in question is watching, that when dealing with insurance companies, you just have to know what to say to them.

Like their children's names and what they wore to school today.

She's a wonderful person that usually hangs in TFDland. I know her personally and can vouch for her.

Not that I'm able to prove my trustworthiness or anything, but that's what I got.
