Anonymous said: How can you be so selfish? You being black and coming from a religious family how does it feel to break their hearts? How can you be so fucked up in the head? You've removed yourself from your family because they kicked you and your son out because you were an atheist. Ever wonder why? You broke their heart! You wouldn't need a fundraiser if you stayed by your family side and kept your atheism to yourself. You've failed your family, your son, and yourself. How can you live with that?
Y’know, that question kind of stung. While the sting slowly left, I started to wonder who you were and then realized it didn’t matter. You. Don’t matter. People like you have such huge balls when it comes to this anonymous feature Tumblr has. I can bet for sure if this was in my face, I wouldn’t hear from half of you anon-tumblr-courage bigots. I’m a fighter and as much as people were begging me to help me I still said no until someone started it for me. I told them to take it down - they did, but they put it back up. I don’t have to justify anything to you.
My “family” did disown me, they threw away me and my son’s things and kept whatever else. I blamed myself for that. I let my son down. Guess what though? I don’t need you or anyone else’s approval. My son is who that matters. My unborn daughter is who that matters. My fiance is who that matters. You want to judge me behind a computer screen - anonymously because you’re pathetic.
I will be starting school this Spring. I’m going for EMT and RN. I am in my own place. I am getting married in November on his birthday. My son is healthy and happy. Things may be really tight right now, but that doesn’t sound or look like failure to me. I did what my family; what my son’s father said I couldn’t. I made it without them. I’m not a piece of shit, I’m not a failure. I’m a fighter.
So fuck you!
I don’t even understand this message. It’s your fault for being an Atheist? Your family treated you and your son so horribly, but it’s definitely your fault because you have different religious views? I had to read this message a few times because I felt like I must be missing the point. All I’m getting from this is that it’s okay for your family to treat you like shit because you’re an Atheist and you should just shut up because religion is the only way. Everything about this message is so pathetic and cowardly. I’m truly sorry you had to read this, but I’m also very impressed by how you handled it.
Good luck with everything. It sounds like you have an amazing future ahead of you!
Thank you for your kind words. I’m convinced that this is person is a family member of mine because they saw my response and responded with another message. That one got too personal so I didn’t even bother reading it all let alone responding to it. I’ve given them enough of my attention for one night.
Fuck that anon. That’s complete and utter bullshit. You did nothing wrong and you know it. Best of luck to you and your son.
Chinese Doctors Use 3D-Printing in Pioneering Surgery to Replace Half of Man’s Skull
Surgeons at Xijing Hospital in Xi’an, Shaanxi province in Northwest China are using 3D-printing in a pioneering surgery to help rebuild the skull of a man who suffered brain damage in a construction accident.
Hu, a 46-year-old farmer, was overseeing construction to expand his home in Zhouzhi county last October when he was hit by a pile of wood and fell down three storeys.
Although he survived the fall, the left side of his skull was severely crushed and the shattered bone fragments needed to be removed, which has led to a depression of one side of his head.
Due to his injuries, Hu cannot see well out of his left eye, experiences double vision (diplopia) and is also unable to speak and write.
If I knew for a certainty that a man was coming to my house with the conscious design of doing me good, I should run for my life.”
