My Real-life Struggles: I don’t know what I’m going to do or how I’m going to pull this off


The first option is buying a device that’s designed to both break and prevent migraines. It’s called Cefaly and it’s bleeding edge tech that is FDA approved to both treat and prevent migraines. It requires a prescription and is supposed to be amazing.

Unfortunately, while she has the prescription, it costs $500 and isn’t covered by insurance. That makes it 100% out of pocket and 100% out of reach for us. We simply can’t afford it.

I’ve reached out to them in the past and tried to get a review unit for her to test. I’m able to get things like that sometimes. I’ve most recently worked with Quell and prior to that, Fisher Wallace. It’s one benefit that I do have as a result of the platform I’ve built over the years.

I’ve never been able to get any type of response from them and so that’s not looking to be an option.

At this point, we may be able to pull it off with tax return but refunds are significantly delayed this year because of the shutdown. A large part of the return will also have to go towards repairs to the house and car, so there’s not a great deal of wiggle room.

    Please email me at Rob. I have a Cefaly unit that was prescribed to me months ago that made my migraines worse that I will send you free!

  • BeckyW says:

    PS–a regular TENS unit might help Lizze, but it doesn’t really work like Cefaly. And it doesn’t break the migraines and sometimes makes things worse. The only reason to try would be cost…regular TENS units are cheap, less than $40 (if you don’t go through doctor). It does sound like you all have a good idea what is the most useful and doable.

      Thanks Becky, I actually have a few TENS units. Companies were just sending them to me for awhile. I was giving them to people who needed them. They are surprisingly cheap, I had assumed they would be really expensive. They’re about the size of a deck of cards and work quite well.. ☺

    Very sad. You all will get through your grandfather’s death, then you can figure out how to help Lizze.

  • So sorry to hear of your loss prayers and positive thoughts for you and family.
