I made a phone call to have a free consultation for something called TMS therapy aka Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. It’s on this upcoming Monday at 12:30.
Because after decades of meds and talk therapy, there has to be another option.
Here’s a quick explanation of what this is.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a noninvasive form of brain stimulation in which a changing magnetic field is used to cause electric current at a specific area of the brain through electromagnetic induction.
Lots of big words, I know. I’ve watched some videos and have done research. Funny, I found it on Facebook because of course it knows that I’m depressed.
IT KNOWS EVERYTHING!
I believe that I am eligible but in the end, it’ll be my insurance that decides if they want to cover it or not. Out of pocket cost is $10,000.00. (Yikes.)
I’m just tired of this shit. I’d do almost anything to feel better. The consultation is free, so I figure why the hell not give it a try? The closest office to my home isn’t too far away. I can drive myself back and forth too.
I’ll update once I know for sure if I’m a candidate and if my insurance will give me a thumbs up or not.
I just love an adventure. I’d enjoy them more if I wasn’t always so fucking sad all of the time.
