I know, drill a hole in your head! Then, you can argue being handicapped
either mentally (insane, thus in need of neural correction) or because you
now have a hole in your head (and need neurosurgery, most likely).

Not only will this get you past the gatekeepers, but the DIY aspect of
having already gotten through the skull might save you some money, too!

I gotta stop blabbing these good ideas on public lists...
