Down on my luck

Well here I am again. I really don’t even know where to start. I didn’t even want to start another go fund me. Well here is my story last year I was living in Kentucky with my two kids. I have always had issues with migraines however between last year and the beginning of this year I have been hospitalized on several occasions. I was told I would have to have stents put into much brain so I made the decision to move back to NW because all of my family is here. I have a condition called Pseudotumor Cerebri and I have severe stenosis on both sides on my brain. This condition leaves me in constant pain. I have had spinal taps to help drain the build up of spinal fluid on my brain and ended up having complications that ended up leaving me to have a blood patch. I raised enough money over the summer to complete my move back. The moving company I used quoted me 2,900 for my entire move from Kentucky back here. Well when they picked my stuff up it ended up being 2,000 lbs over which resulted in the price going up. I wasn’t expecting an extra $2,600 in charges. I am a uber driver, I haven’t been able to drive because the pain is so intense and honestly I don’t want to risk my life or others on the road. That is my only source of income. I drive when I can however that little bit of money goes towards rent and lights and household needs. I saw a neurosurgeon a couple weeks ago and had my surgery consult, today I learned that my surgery was denied because of the lack of information they sent to the insurance. So who knows how long it will be before I have this surgery. The moving company told me if I don’t give them the $2,600 by the end of the month that they would begin auctioning mine and my kids stuff off. Those are my kids personal belongings, sentimental pics and things my kids have made me. I feel defeated I don’t know what to do. So all I can do at this point is ask you all if you can find it in your heart to help me and my kids out in this dire time. Thank you in advance.
