I’ll begin my request by stating it is sometimes the hardest task to admit that you need help.
I am currently in a situation, along with my significant other, that we are desperately trying to get out of.
I’ll attempt to make a long story short, and briefly summarize everything.
She[my Significant Other] hasn’t been able to work lately due to severe anxiety issues, and other physical limitations. She is unable to get disability though, because we are unable to afford the trips to the doctors in order to get it done. I think it’s self explanatory that we also can’t afford health coverage, and the free options don’t really cover much cost-wise, in our case. Working alone, renting an apartment in NJ, supporting the two of us and several animals, I’ve fallen into a hole of debt I don’t see myself being able to climb out of alone, along with ruining my credit. Not to mention, we’ve been evicted once before, because of not being able to afford the bills.
Along with that, she has severe infections in her mouth that have been causing her teeth to fall out and if left untreated much longer, will eventually make its way to her brain; killing her. But that’s just part of the story…
At the end of February, 2020, we had to leave our apartment because I was no longer able to afford rent, as it was being raised an extra $100 a month. Our only option was to move into her step-dads house. My parents wouldn’t take the both of us in because of our pets. Her family refuses to help if she isn’t working. Her step-dad is only around a day or two out of each week, as he mostly lives with his new Girlfriend. Leaving behind in his broken house, his 20 year old daughter who he’s neglected most of her life.
Their mom passed in 2013, leaving the step-dad in a zombie-like state. Because of this, the house (our only option, besides being homeless) is in shambles. The foundation is caving in, the ceiling inside is falling down, due to the black mold build up that has been left untreated, and unfixed, for years; just like everything else in the house. Not only that, but it’s infested with fleas and other types of annoying insects that are causing major problems with our pets.
Her sister who lives in the room next to us, constantly steals from us, as if us feeding and taking care of her wasn’t enough. If we cause an issue about it, the step-dad will throw us out, as he cares more for his real daughter than he does for the stepdaughter(my S.O), though he neglects both of them entirely unless begged for help. There’s no internet, so we can’t do online school like we had planned. I wanted a certificate in music production, and she wants to be a licensed realtor. In person school is not an option, thanks to COVID.
We desperately need to get out of this place, for our safety, and for the safety and betterment of our pets, and three kittens born on Easter, who are slowly getting worse with each passing day.
The cherry on top, is now there’s a global pandemic, and I end up losing my job that was paying our bills and feeding us. Unemployment has been no help, as it’s been a month and nothings changed for my file status. So in a week, my car will be repossessed, for the last time. In a Month we will be homeless, because I can’t pay the rent to live in this disaster house. I won’t be able to afford to repay a loan anytime soon, and the longer we’re here, the more I fear for my significant other, and my pets who I raised since they were 4 weeks old.
Any attempts to fix my credit, backfires, as it is now below 400. And hers only mid 400s. I truly am seeing no way out, and lose more faith each day.
We need serious help, a boost into society, to help us land on our feet and do the things we dream of, and set out to do.
I will make a list of everything any donations will be used for, as there is a lot. This is a series of unfortunate events, that has become a bundle of severe problems rolling down a hill; continuing to gain speed with no stop in sight.
Medical Bills (to diagnose and treat significant other)
Dental Bills (to remove infections from significant others mouth, replace all teeth as more than a few have fallen out or chipped, and the rest are beginning to rot. [just this process alone has been estimated by her last dentist, years ago mind you, at around $20,000. Its only gotten worse.])
Debt repayment to fix credit (for both)
Pay off car loan in full ( saves about $250/month, increased credit, 1 less bill to pay[current payoff quote is around $5,500])
First and foremost, new housing. (Most of the donations would be used as a down payment on a house, and if enough, several mortgage payments, and if we really have enough, we could just outright buy a decent place. We especially want to do this now during the collapse of mortgage payments, and the housing market. We could get a decent home for a really good price, and get out of this hell of a home we currently live in.)
Vet bills, and treatment for all pets. (6 cats, 3 young kittens, a dog with severe skin conditions linked to the state the house is in, the dog has lived here her whole life, and 1 bunny)
I would also like to completely repair and refurbish the place we currently stay in, for her younger siblings who will have to stay, and because the family will end up having to pay for it down the road, which they can’t afford either. But thats only if there’s enough.
I would like the email of whoever donates, so I can stay in contact with said person and formally update them on what would be our current situation, thanks to your donations. Any receipts would be presented upon request, medical bills and dental bills, vet bills, and any other information you may want to see. You should know exactly how your money will be helping us.
For any other information, or to ask questions or to learn more about us and our story, you can email me, I will be happy to answer any questions or provide any further insight. I’ll even provide pictures if I must.
