I was thinking about getting cable at the start of next month. Primarily for the Food Network, as some of their shows are hard to find online. Yet I was wobbling back and forth as it is so bloody expensive, and just not a necessity for me. Still, I was still saving a bit for it just in case.
Then I went to visit the neurologist on Tuesday and we decided drugs were not working. 6 days out of the week I’ve had a migraine, for months, so I’d say, no, the drugs weren’t working.
My next option? Botox.
Between 12-20 injections; forehead, temples, head and neck.
The drug itself cost $400 and then there is a $150 “injection fee” and treatment lasts 2-3 months – if it works.
If it does, after a few treatments there is a possibility my migraines will go away. If it doesn’t? Well apparently that’s my last option, so I’m really hoping it does.
So, my cable fund is going to my migraine treatment. Unless of course my health insurance comes back and tells me the experimental treatment is covered.
In that case I’ll be expressionless in my living room watching Chopped.
