Email to Hope this evening:
So today I get a certified letter from (former employer), saying my COBRA ended on March 25. First of all, I freaking contacted them about this issue in March. Secondly, Insurance has been approving stuff for the past month.
I contacted the TMS office (Lizzie), they’re contacting insurance, but for the moment I’m not going per their recommendation.
For a deeply private person, I decided to open up to my family about having TMS. I’m the youngest of seven, so when I say “my family” I mean brothers 1-3, sisters-in-law 1-3, 2 nephews and 1 niece. i emailed them:
As you may or may not know, I have depression. It’s gotten pretty bad over the last year and a half. As such, I’m currently undergoing Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) at (hospital) 5x a week for it for the next six ish weeks.
I just wanted you to be aware of this, as I had my first session yesterday. Please keep this within the email recipients for now.
Please feel free to ask me anything. I love you all
The response was overwhelmingly positive. However, the sweetest was probably my conversation with Nephew1, where he asked about it today.
