Losing heart.

Scraped together everything I had into one place last week, sold all my crypto and investments. Was told everything looks great for the purchase of my home.

Cut to today, cryptos are ripping skyward and I'm now being informed that a bunch of my assets were mis-classified and Covid regulations on mortgages under certain credit scores mandate that I have 6 months of bills in an account on top of and separate from closing costs.

Possibly just dead in the water, down a fair bit of cash from inspections, appraisal, etc.

Hurts really badly because it really feels like I'm doomed to forever be fucked with regard to finances.

Update of note*

My grandfather has decided he no longer would like to receive the weekly infusions that are keeping him out of the hospital, and yet neither does he want hospice care to come anywhere near him. My mom and her siblings are going to have a group discussion with him soon about allowing hospice to make him comfortable because without these infusions he is going to deteriorate rather quickly.

Sad to hear that OB. Can you appeal?

In process, I'm told things look good.

Rollercoasters have never been my thing friends.

shit OB. I hope the roller coaster smooths out and these troubles get in your rearview mirror sooner than later. We're all pulling for you

Bank or credit union?

Bank. The credit union's package wasn't as competitive. We do all of our regular banking through a credit union.
