I Need Your Help! (Urgent Car Repair)

I am a mommy to the two most incredible boys! My oldest has always been my rock! My youngest was born 6 months ago (time flies!) This year has been tough for me.  I had so many complications during pregnancy, mostly due to thyroid issues. My blood pressure bottomed out during labor, but they were able to bring me back.   I never knew your thyroid could cause such severe problems!  I was having thyroid storms, which would cause my blood pressure to drop and cause me to pass out unexpectedly.  I could be talking to someone and just drop.  I was terrified, especially worrying that I was going to hurt my baby.  While hospitalized, they found that my T4 level was 264, and it is suppose to be between 1-4.  The potassium I had been prescribed was somehow affecting my thyroid medication, causing my body to not accept it.  It was definitely a learning experience.  My doctor finally has my numbers coming down and I am getting back to normal.  I was tested and I found out I have hashimoto disease (an autoimmune disease that attacks your thyroid,) which explained all my issues.  Now that I am getting back to feeling somewhat human, I got my certification and I am starting up my business of wedding/event planning and public relations.  I have overcome all other obstacles, but I have one more huge  obstacle standing in my way of getting back on my feet.  My car needs the water pump replaced, which requires work to the timing belt , and it aIso needs a cross over pipe.  It is currently at Midway tire. DSS has agreed to pay part of the total of $1004, but I have to come up with the remaining amount. I am not usually one to ask for help, I like to be the one helping others, but I don't know what else to do.  If you can help, I promise to pay it forward when I get back on my feet.  Like most of us, I have been knocked down so many times in life, but I will keep getting back up, this time I just need your help to do so.  It's a tough time for everyone, and I understand if you can't donate, but prayers will be graciously appreciated just the same.  Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story of my dilemma.   ♥️
