We keep striking out and I am starting to feel sick :(

We have looked at 6 places and been turned down for all of them. Some liked other families then two loud small children with a dog and cat, others decided to sell instead of rent, and the others out debt to income is to high :/ we have always paid our rent on time, never been evicted etc etc. but our rent has always been about 75% of what we make since our son is disabled.

I understand that makes us looks bad and no one believes us we will pay. That we haven't used credit cards in years to avoid debt and stay in our means makes no sense to anyone but to us. I am just losing hope.

My in laws said we could go live in their one room basement and share their home but we have to give away the pets. They also think our son's auto immune disease and autism is made up. And they are in a different state so he would loose all his current services and transferring takes so long he would be months without help or doctors.

I just keep hoping new places will be listed every 20 minutes I check. Still holding out hope but it's fading fast :(

The city condemned the home we are currently renting. We have no choice and no time.

Nh, live free or die. No public housing in the state. Find your own housing they will help you pay for it. But the won't help you find it. And I can pay never had trouble with that. Just need an actual address to pay for. I can't believe we were paying $1500 a month and the lady was so under handed. It's not really the condition of the home, just the fact she built most of it without permits that is getting it shut down.

It's just my nature to have every detailed super planned out. Not having a clear solution and game plan is eating me alive. I keep trying to tell myself we are due some good karma and all will work out as it should. Not really sinking in though :/

I think I know where you are coming from. It's so hard not knowing!
