Hello! I am struggling with my debt and need help paying it off. My dream is to buy a house so that all my money is not going to waste with rent. I want to be able to own a house with a yard for me and my American Bulldog! I need to pay off my debt first. I have about $5000 in credit card debt and have been slowly paying it off but I cannot get ahead of it. I work full time and all of my pay check goes towards bills. I feel like I can never get ahead. Any help would be appreciated! 2018 ended with my younger sister killing her self at Christmas. Since then I have been a wreck!! This has completely upset my life and my mind. I am barely surviving without her and I miss her every day. It has affected my ability to focus and do my job properly due to the depression. I am focusing this year on fixing my finances so that I can get ahead and not have to stress everyday. I barely have enough money after bills are paid to have enough food for the week. Most days I go without eating because of this. If I can get my debt down, I can start to save money to be able to move out of my apartment! I cannot get approved for a house loan due to too high debt to income, mostly because of my outrageous student loans. I currently live in an apartment and am hoping to move to a house with a yard so that my dog can have more space. I have no money saved for a security deposit and stressing out about this. I’ve applied for personal loans and am denied by all. I don’t want to ask others for money but I am desperate and just need help out of my hole. Thank you in advance!!!!
