My name is Cat. I’m a 20-year-old non-binary trans person from the Wiradjuri people. I am chronically ill - severe fibromyalgia, epilepsy and neurological impairments stemming from these, as well as autism.

I am extremely poor, living on the generosity of my partner and friends. I cannot work, and all my attempts to receive government assistance have been denied.

I tried crowdfunding once a few months ago, but because of Australia’s strict laws regarding online money services, I couldn’t prove my identity adequately, and my fundraiser was shut down.

Despite my need, my family have refused to help with my needs. Over winter, I starved. The cold weather resulted in nerve damage in my fingers.

To make a long story short: I need a powered wheelchair. A wheelchair that suits my needs is very expensive (some $5000, without extras that I will need). Walking causes me extreme, widespread pain and severe fatigue.

The total sought sum is $8000, covering the chair, as well as some of the expensive therapies I need. I have put off vision therapy for a year, and as a result, my eyesight has deteriorated to the point where I can no longer read books. I also need cognition and physical therapy.

If by some miracle, I exceed my needed amount, I will be donating all extras to charities such as Guide Dogs Australia, and other programmes that assist the disabled in our community.

If you cannot donate, please share if you can. If anyone wants or can donate perks, that is equally as welcome.

Thank you for reading.

I’ve been away from the internet for awhile, but not without my corsets.  Here’s proof: a (lightly) cinched waist from my early-morning air travel today.  I’m looking forward to finally getting to all of the asks that have been waiting for me.  Thanks for being patient!

As of September 1st, I will be taking 5 commissions per month ONLY. These slots are…
