The past few months have been really hard financially, and my fiance and I are feeling it. He runs his own business and has had a really unsteady client base this year (we’re not sure why either). I have a good job with consistent pay, thankfully.
However, with getting slightly less pay from him and having the year we’ve had, things are getting chaotic. My car was hit in a parking lot and was totaled. The old car was paid off, and now we have a car payment again after a few years without one. I’ve been to the ER three times this year and I’m managing the extra bills from that right now. The total was about $7,000 I’m in school right now as well, which is generally paid by a grant. I took one class unpaid and set up a payment plan to pay the tuition. Well, I just found out that they have not been talking the money they said they have, and I owe my school over $1,000. Starting next month, rent goes up to.
I have severe food allergies and have to eat the most expensive foods. We’ve stopped eating out and still can’t make ends meet. He can have ramen noodles, but there is no equivalent for me. We’ve got two cats to take care of and a wedding to plan. We were going to get married next June, but if we can’t get this money stuff figured out we may have to put it on hold.
Thank you for any help you can give.
