Guys.. I'm so sorry to have to say this but I just got back from filing taxes today and I am officially broke and losing my mind. Please read my synopsis.

This move to Las Vegas took literally everything I had and part of the whole reason I was able to make the move at all was because of friends and the help I got from everyone before. I didn't have to live on the street because you guys hooked me up with hotel money. So THANK YOU.

But my life has been a domino effect of fucking let-downs the last four months and right when I thought things were about to slow down, life's gotta punch me one last time in the mouth.

I moved in with two friends and one of their mothers in a home here in Vegas, but something happened a few nights ago and their moochy mom is kicking her out (despite relying on her to help pay mortgage), and by proxy, me and the other girl. This all but forced me to whip out the ol' VA Home Loan (to ensure we wouldn't be homeless) that I wasn't able to get previously before now because I was not yet out of the service for two years to give them my self-employed tax returns (of which they need the last two years.)

So in order to get my loan, I needed to go file my taxes for 2015 and 2016, the first years of my self-employment out of the military.

Problem is, I owed them over 3,000USD, which is just shy of putting me in the red and leaving me with literally not even enough to pay for food. All three of my family I called basically unhelpfully told me I should have filed more expenses, but I'm not going to lie and claim another 5k in expenses where there wasn't any.

This would have been fine, had I not been bleeding money since November to get out of my previously awful situation, leaving me with what the IRS just took from me.

In short, this is the day I fucking die. I need help and I need to provide a home for me and two other amazing people, but I do not even have enough to feed us. Nvm they bailed on me, after offering to pay for my taxes. Now I am truly fucked.

I am begging for some help in getting us to last until I get my loan qualification and helping us hire a truck to at least move our stuff to the house once we find it. Because right now, all of us are in a terrible rut and we want to work together but a string of bad luck has us scrambling.

I do not want to do this again. And it's so fucking embarrassing, but we have a game plan to make this work using my VA Loan. The problem is the leap between here and there.

If you can spare any little bit at all, it will help. >_<''''''''

If you can help by spreading the word/signal boosting, you'd have my eternal gratitude as well.
Ugh.. I'm so sorry to slap this into your inboxes but I wouldn't if things weren't really dark over here.

I have also reposted this journal on my page. You might try setting up a crowdfunding campaign too. Couldn't hurt.

Just need new lines, and since I'm a mechanic, it'll only cost me $120; but also being a student in my area, that is a lot of money. xD

I think so. But I've been really busy working with the VA the last few days and getting my transportation insured. I have not been able to answer any notes. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Signal-Boosting for you.
Once I have some free time, I'll see if I can raise some funds to donate. Maybe a Frig YCH if you don't have any opposition to that idea?

I'm sorry things are going bad. I do hope you and your friends can get somewhere real soon. x
