Thank you all for your kindness, I know that helping a stranger isn�t the easiest thing in the world. Things for my wife and I are starting to look up, she started working a full time job as a marketing specialist and I�m going to be steadily receiving my G.I Bill. Thank you all for the chance to let us get our finances in order and to relieve the everyday stress that we felt.
Disabled Marine Coprs Veteran and Wife Need Rent Help
I am a husband and a United States Marine Corps recently discharged veteran. My amazing wife and I are both twenty-five years old. I am a student working on my Associates Degree as well as my Paramedic certification. My wife is currently looking for work as a copy writer and is a graduate from Eastern Oregon University.
My wife and I moved to Chicago because she got a job as a copywriter and due to me being a honorably discharged disabled veteran, I can attend school and have a income anywhere in the United States. Sadly, shortly after moving into an apartment of our own and furnishing it, my wife got laid off.. We've been living paycheck to paycheck since then and due to the winter break for my university, the payment I received for school was significantly lower than usual. My Post Traumatic Stress made it incredibly difficult for me to keep employment and I attended a Intensive Outpatient Program to help me learn how to get better. We weren't able to pay the full amount of rent and are struggling incredibly financially. The financial stress is also putting a strain on our marriage and causing me anxiety which makes my PTSD even worse. We need Modest Needs' help to pay for our rent this month.
This funding will help bring us current with our bills as well as give us a chance to save up in case another emergency comes up. My wife is seeking employment and I will be receiving the full payment for my G.I Bill in March. Your help would benefit us incredibly. We are a young married couple who are trying our hardest to be the best that we could be and to do the right thing.
