BECAUSE I am only so effective at exercising on my own, I must draw on the expertise of my therapists, and their time is not cheap, particularly given the intensity of my regimen and the amount of time I spend with them (my “physical therapy” sessions are each three hours long).
None of my therapies is covered by any insurance company, and so I, and we, are especially grateful for the generosity of my support team to continue with the modalities that work best. I recognize that, if put in my position, very few would be as fortunate as I know I am to have the constant encouragement from all of you that I do.
Just to share a sense of the investment that my body requires: it costs $80 per hour to work with skilled neuro-therapists. At 15 hours per week, that’s $1,200 per week, and $4,800 per month. (And that’s less than a third of the working-out I do….)
Excluding special trips and operations, the total cost for my recovery plan is around $65,000/year. Yes, it is a hugely significant investment in the rest of my life.
