What’s more incredible is the idea that a stranger can Wikipedia things and trick people into thinking they can invalidate someone else’s personal and confidential issues
lindsaychrist is the world’s biggest piece of shit he openly mocked my sexual abuse by posting photos of crying altar boys in my tag not even 6 months ago how can any of you fucking believe a word he says
This is all I’m gonna blog about now because the person I care about more than anything is having his problems invalidated by someone stuck in the 2011 era of blogging and I’m not going to get off of that so if you have a problem with it you can either help me get the truth out or you can unfollow me
so many of you are so bored you’ll jump into any remotely dramatic scenario regardless of how little you actually know of it
I understand that tumblr is no one’s personal army but like… where are my “friends” right now? Not looking at the dashboard but still posting? You see it and you aren’t gonna comment because you don’t wanna lose your connection with shitty people and it’s gross
This is something I have not been talking about on my blog very much because it’s been so detrimental to my mental health for such a long time that I am only now ready to speak up.
My private and confidential medical records were released without my consent which lead to my short term disability appeal being denied due to ‘issues by bisexuality’. I am now in debt to Canada Post for the amount of $8990.
I have included a more detailed explanation of what happened in the read more link below.
I am in the process of hiring a lawyer to help me combat the ableist, homophobic, and irresponsible mistreatment of myself and my case. I can not do this without your help.
If you want to donate but don’t have a credit card, you can donate to my paypal in the sidebar on my blog and I will add your name and donation amount to the GoFundMe page as an offline donation.
Thank you to everyone who has donated so far, or reblogged this post. I am so, so, so thankful.
This is literally such bullshit…
1. You left out this little tidbit on ur blog, but on the gofundme page you say that the lawyer’s consultation fee is ONLY $211 dollars while the retainer fee “MIGHT BE” in the thousands. For those who don’t know, a retainer fee is the amount of money you pay to keep the lawyer working on your case IF he or she decides it’s a worthwhile and can be won. How is a retainer fee even in the question when they haven’t even accepted your case? You don’t need $2000 for a consultation. If they don’t think it’s worth their time, you would have received $1788.13 for sitting on your chunky dunk ass… dont even think about changing anything in your read more because i have it all screencapped and so do many others.
Heres the Gofundme screencap:
"the retainer fee is EXPECTED to be in the thousands”
2. “Little did I know, the doctor who gave the insurance company my medical record (about prescriptions and continued support for medical leave) had also given them my confidential mental health worker’s notes.
Every patient is Canada is entitled to sign a PIPEDA document before seeing a physician. This document is basically the Canadian version of HIPAA and it covers the doctors ass from being sued. The insurance needed that info and are allowed to use the notes from your psychiatrist to validate your mental health claim. You gave them permission. It was not out of their jurisdiction.
3. You say your boss randomly called the police on you for no reason to see if you were “healthy”. In order to make a short-term disability claim, you need to first inform your boss about your illness/claim i.e. mental health issues/previous suicidal thoughts. Why wouldn’t she call the police after you were telling her these crazy things? It wasn’t random chance that she did that. Your boss had reason to believe you were in danger. She also needed to cover her ass. If she didn’t do anything after you disclosed that information to her SHE could be sued if you killed yourself. Your mother was contacted because she was on your emergency contact list, once again that was not a violation of privacy since you signed the document. How else would she have gotten her number?
In addition, you know police don’t break down doors unless there is no answer. You didn’t answer your mother or the police so your door was broken down. This makes perfect sense since they had reason to believe you were in danger.
THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING AND THE BASIS OF YOUR UNWARRANTED DONATIONS
4. You say that your appeal was denied “due to the fact that [you] [were] not straight” giving reference to how the report wrongly states that you have “issues by bisexuality" even though you included that (your struggling with your sexual identity/bisexuality) in your appeal
“A month later I received a letter in the mail saying my appeal had been denied on the basis that there was not sufficient medical records to show I was experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and struggling with my sexual identity.”
YOU INCLUDED “STRUGGLING WITH [YOUR] SEXUAL IDENTITY” IN YOUR APPEAL THAT YOU MADE YOURSELF AND THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE RIGHTFULLY REFERRING TO. YOU STATED THAT YOUR BISEXUALITY AND COMING TO TERMS WITH IT WAS CAUSING YOUR ISSUES! NOT THE PERSON WRITING THE REPORT! THEY ARE NOT BEING HOMOPHOBIC IN ANY DEGREE! YOU ARE BLAMING SOMEBODY FOR REPEATING VERBATUM WHAT YOU TOLD THEM REGARDING YOUR “PROBLEMS”. YOU ARE PUTTING YOUR OWN WORDS IN SOME ELSES MOUTH.
You say that “the report includes no less than 7 completely irrelevant references to my sexuality and frames them as an excuse to invalidate the very real and dangerous mental health issues I have struggled with for the past year. Keep in mind that all of this information was collected illegally without my consent.”
It was completely legal.
They don’t need your “consent” when you yourself wrote YOUR OWN APPEAL to provide evidence for your short-term disability case. Maybe somebody should sue you for defamation.
this gofundme scheme isn’t based on your “struggles”, youre just playing oppressed for being a bisexual white male in Canada and are willing to reach to the stars to slander people for money.
im sorry to the people that have donated to this bullshit cause but maybe if you complain to the employees at gofundme, you can get your donations refunded.
This is disgusting. But since you’ve gone ahead and tried to drag me into this I’m going to reply to every single one of your points.
1. I spoke with the lawyer on Friday. They told me civil cases run in the low thousands. I have no idea how much the retainer fee is going to cost, I am not trying to fundraise a specific amount, I’m trying to get my bases covered so that I can move forward.
2. I don’t know where you’re getting your information, but I have never signed any forms consenting to anything during a doctor’s visit. This PIPEDA document you’re referring to is something I’ve never heard of in my life. My physician released my mental health worker’s notes without my permission. My physician had no right to do this. When I got a letter from my therapist saying I had been attending sessions I had to sign two pages of a release form. A hospital administrator has been working with me closely because they have acknowledged their enormous mistake and are trying to make things right.
3. I hadn’t said anything to my boss. I had called into work sick for a week. I live in a small town and my manager knows my mother personally and took it upon herself to call her and say that I had attempted suicide.
4. I did not submit anything for my appeal. My appeal was decided on by a doctor on the other side of the country. My appeal was written by my union representative and I can assure you that no references to my sexuality were included. The doctor looking over the appeal had many notes and documents that were used in his decision, several of which being my confidential mental health notes.
The release of my medical information was not legal. I’ve already been told it was not legal by the health organization I have been dealing with. I have not misrepresented myself or my struggle and I’m disgusted that you would try and do this to me. This fundraiser is my last chance at getting my life back and you have taken your personal vendetta to the next level by trying to invalidate it. I sincerely hope you see this and back off and understand how incredibly serious this is.
I understand the emptiness of this threat to the point that it isn’t a threat, but I do take note of the people that my friends here interact with and I’m probably not letting it slide anymore
thrillyourwill not now please
Why do we give free passes, seemingly at random, to racists and victim blamers and transphobes in the name of problematicism now being a joke
And of course all of the people who pretend to be your friend will drop you in a second in favor of something like this. I don’t care for drama - I honestly do not - but I don’t know how I could be friends with you if you ever interact with some of the horrible people you all let fly under the radar.
The idea that if you don’t like someone, they suddenly don’t experience homophobia is a joke, and the idea that now all it takes is to write a few paragraphs to know more about the law than a lawyer would be laughable if it wasn’t so sad. Think critically for like a second.
We’re letting the words of someone who hasn’t gotten over offensive blogging, someone who has made fun of rape victims in the past, play into our judgement of a situation? We’re letting other people decide the validity of someone else’s experiences? We’re now so obsessed with the concept of the drag that we’re willing to revert to children for notes? This isn’t a matter of being “problematic” for fun anymore. Real people’s lives are on the line and I’d like to think that some of you are more than intelligent enough to actually think things through for a second.
