    Oh my god. I’d love to see how the hearing goes on January 2nd, if you’re able to go and report on that! It’d be fascinating to see how her “black outs” get handled and whether she actually has them and can prove it/has them but can’t prove it medically thanks to not being able to see a doctor/was totally making them up.
