My name is Greg, I’m 32 from NJ. Seeking a large sum to help my family and myself. Please read entirely, and share if possible.
Information about myself :
I was abused by my mother from being born until 3 years old ( i was hit, thrown and she put her cigarettes out on me ) ( i have many tattoos to cover up the scars she left on me ) ( she tried kidnapping me multiple times after my dad got custody ) ( we have a permanent restraining order on her ) ( she was addicted to drugs and alcohol and is in and out of jail )
Dealt with the gradual decline of my grandmother who was my mother figure in my life. She had dementia/alzheimer’s and she would pace back and forth, open doors at 3am to let her hallucinations(people) in and out of the house, scream and cry constantly, couch bound ( refused to sleep in her bedroom ) , hip fracture, dad refuses to put her in a home and she passed away right in front of us , at home, where we still live today. Dad has not made any changes to house since that, same carpet, same couch, same everything pretty much.
Currently still deal with my aunt , who is 60 , has schizophrenia and is also declining, and is becoming forget and acting somewhat similar to how my grandmother did ( she is her daughter ) , she screams, pee’s herself, refuses to bathe, steals our food ( we have to hide things in our own home ), sleeps with ripped up toilet paper, napkins and tissues in her bed, is on many meds, and a few anti-psychotic drugs which don’t really help her. she has had so many med switches over the years and it does not change how she lashes out at us many times a day, goes from screaming , to crying, to pacing, to screaming repetitive words that don’t make any sense for hours. my dad once again is not going to put her in a home or anything like that and she will be here to the very end.
I have not lived on my own yet , I will be 33 years old in January , i have a girlfriend name Brandy of 12 years that I’m not married to yet, because we want to be married and have our own home. We have no kids and are responsible. She works.
I had my job taken from me due to COVID-19, that I worked hard to get to and now I’m hoping I’m called back before Jan 1st, otherwise I lose the seniority I worked hard to get to. I deal poker. It’s my dream job and I love it and I want to be back as soon as I can. With both of our jobs combined , we can never get ahead on saving , let alone be able to afford to have our own place, and be able to feed ourselves, pay bills, etc. Unemployment will be running out soon for me.
I need to get out of the house I was abused in , I need to get out the house I watched my grandmother decline and die in , and still to this day I’m watching my aunt get worse and worse. I can’t do this anymore.
We have a dog named Casper , who is a Maltese. He is 12 years old, and has spine/disc issues and occasionally has head tilt and limping due to this and its frustrating to watch. We love him so much.
I have dental issues that need to be addressed. I have a front tooth missing , which has destroyed all confidence I had left, many cavities, and my jaw cracks when moving it. I would love to get a full set of dental implants, and finally have my confidence back and be able to actually smile. Brush teeth 3 times a day and floss, since forever, but have had dental issues all my life. Always have bad breath even after brushing thoroughly, sick of it.
I lost 25lbs unintentionally, been to a lot of doctors and have been told I have celiac disease as of a few years ago and have been gluten free ever since. I was at one point 106lbs. 106lbs at 5 ft 7, 32 year old male. I’m struggling to maintain weight but currently at 116.8lbs. Struggle with occasional nausea, and digestive issues, and other issues that come and go.
My goals with money :
House for me and Brandy – $200,000
Savings – $400,000
Dental Implants – $40,000-$60,000 ( rough guess )
Pay off my car – $11,300
Pay off my dads car ( he helped me my whole life with a lot of things ) – $17,000
Pay off my dads mortgage – $115,000
Remodel dads home( home I’ve lived in since birth )( Its outdated)- $20,000
If you made it this far, thanks for reading. Please help if possible , and share if possible. Thanks for your time.
