There was no live show today, we’re playing a classic Bad Quaker. And tomorrow is the week’s best-of. We’ll be back live Sunday night.
But what if there were NEVER a new Feens show, ever again??
So, I’ve been running this show since May 2011. Freedom Feens is a labor of love, and overall in that time I’ve lost money. Thousands of dollars. I try to break even, but end up spending money on needed gear, renting streaming servers, buying microphones for new hosts, getting gear to part-15 micro-radio stations, helping develop software like FeenPhone to improve liberty, or making fun Feens buttons and liberty buttons to give away at events, and just general day-to-day expenses.
It was OK for the first three years, but this past year my health has been declining due to life-threatening asthma and allergies. Here’s what I’m dealing with:
Acute Severe Asthma – Status Asthmaticus – doesn’t respond to normal asthma treatment.
Sleep Apnea (AHI of 140. That’s 3 times as many events per hour as what’s considered very high)
Central Sleep Apnea (brain driven, not body driven)
GERD (severe acid reflux, stomach acid in lungs)
Polyps in colon (pre-cancerous, adenomatous, removed)
Allergies (VERY severe, IgE levels 10 times high) (had to get rid of cats. meh.)
High blood pressure 184/104
Mild hiatal hernia
on Prednisone, need to taper off slowly.
-Recurrent upper respiratory infections from Prednisone
broke nose coughing and fainting.
broke a rib coughing.
Medical expenses have wiped out our savings, and I still haven’t asked for a cent from our listeners. But I’m also barely able to work now, yet still running the Feens daily.
