It’s 1.30am and I’ve just been awakened by low blood sugar, as I eat toast to raise my sugar levels I hear Nick’s CPAP machine making the most horrible squawking noises. I remember when we met, we had sleepovers and I’d remember him gasping for breath as he slept and he was diagnosed with sleep apnea. He’s had his machine for eight years, almost as long as we’ve been together and now it’s pretty much dead. He’s needed a new one for years and money has just never been there.
I want to buy him a new CPAP machine and it’ll take about $300 for a new one with a mask and strap and everything if we get it from the US. It would cost double that for one from Australia, ridiculously enough! (Our health insurance doesn’t cover it.) Nick has been my carer and my biggest support person over the last decade, I don’t know how I could be here without him. He denies himself so many things to look after me.
If you would like to support my goal and you like my art and can afford it, do head over to Fancy Lady Industries and see if there’s anything there you would like to purchase. I have prints of my artwork, fat necklaces, vain necklaces and other things available!
