Oh Grasshopper, I can see that you're early into this game called getting proper treatment for ME/CFS. Nothing is guaranteed. $750 is just the starting price, and it goes on from there. There are many naturopaths and holistic docs out there who can do the same thing for much cheaper. Most people on this board are severely ill, unable to work, and have been for many years. They've already spent all they had on treatments that didn't work or made them worse, or at best, only a tiny bit better. As a consequence I would guess they they're all experts at managing their money, not spending on toys such as iPhones and extravagant phone and cable bills. If they don't have the money, they do without. It's a slow attrition into poverty. At this point, I actually look poor, with old stained clothes, shoes falling apart, glasses so old that I can't see shit, car from the 1990s (back when I used to work) and no possibility of replacing it. I think I'm pretty typical.
