Don't give up, OP! I know this particular instrument probably has sentimental value to you, but if there's nothing you can do to prevent its being sold, you can always find a way to get access to another one. Your music isn't going to desert you as long as you hold on to your love of it. There have even been cases of musicians separated from their instruments for years, practicing in their minds, who emerged able to play every bit as beautifully as before. I'm a violinist, and I've done something similar when my violin had to be pawned to pay the bills (at least half a dozen times over the last few years). This isn't forever.
