I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and Aspergers. I also have sleep apnoea (I stop breathing when I am asleep - a condition that is common with EDS), and require a CPAP machine so that I don't risk my life every night.

On my worst nights, I stop breathing long enough that my stomach fluids come back up and go down into my lungs. My overall AHI score is 57.9 - VERY severe!!! Normal is under 5. With a CPAP machine, my score has been 0.7, however I have done the trial now and need to buy my own machine. I have tried different funding avenues but have been rejected because CPAP machines do not fall under their tight category guidelines. My husband is my full time carer and we are both on the pension trying to raise two kids. I need sleep!!! I need SAFE sleep. Please help.

The picture is of my two kids - I would love to spend less time sleeping during the day, and more time with them!!!

Any extra money raised will go towards our other medical and disability bills (e.g. therapy for my kids, therapy for me, specialists appointments, etc), none of which we can currently afford.

Oh, and I feel incredibly guilty for having to ask for help like this - so please feel free to be anonymous if you decide to donate.

Thank you so much!!!
