After My Orders Weren't Renewed, We're Adjusting to Civilian Life & Need Help Catching Up Please!

My Story:

I'm a veteran, and as of now I'm retired due to budget cuts and my title 10 orders not getting renewed. I have since had to fall back on a new job that pays significantly less, and I'm struggling to keep our family afloat. On top of this, I went from supporting a family of 3 to 5 due to my step kids coming to live with me full time and my youngest son needing additional care due to his special needs diagnosis. This shortfall forced me to make choices between covering our rent, putting food on the table, and over keeping up with the payments to our creditors like the storage company and the hospital. In addition to my loss of income, my wife has recently been diagnosed with some anxiety and mental disorders that are preventing her from working at this time.

The primary cause of our hardship is that my military pay got messed up, and the fix that the military gave us ended up causing us to fall further behind. I make just enough to cover expenses but have nothing left over for any emergencies or any other costs that come up. I can never make a dent in what I owe since there is nothing left over. As a result, we're struggling with a medical bill and with our storage bill from where we had to move. I'm very humbly asking for assistance with both of these bills. With this assistance, we'll be able to get back on track, and most importantly, we'll be able to stay out of debt going forward. Thank you.
