The cover art for my book was designed by artist Miriam Greenberg. It is one of the paintings in her portfolio. Entitled "Compassion," it's a perfect name that exemplifies the purpose of my book.
Numerous quotes from famous people throughout the centuries and from around the world are sprinkled throughout my manuscript. Those quotes evoke humor, happiness, hope and compassion for my readers. Anyone going through a medical crisis needs all of that.
The non-specific coloration of the arms reaching to each other demonstrates that my book is not limited to one part of the human population. The spiritual content in my text is universal. The psychological coping mechanisms portrayed in the chapters of "It's MY Crisis and I'll Cry if I Need To" are safe, sound and practical can-do strategies.
No matter who you are, no matter the diagnosis: if you or a loved one are facing a medical challenge/crisis, my book addresses your needs in a forthright, pro-active manner. By reading my book and following its suggestions, you and/or your loved one can become pro-active in promoting a dignified, productive response to the many challenges of your medical crisis.
Stay tuned. I expect to be announcing the release date for my book in the coming weeks.
Save your sanity, time & money!
You need to know how to meet your medical and/or mental health needs NOW. You're struggling to survive moment by moment. And you need your dignity.
You're rushing to appointments (the ones you remembered) and/or wondering which treatment to use. Meanwhile, your costs are rising, your needs are changing and you hardly know how to make sense of what to do first, second and later. What about the emotions boiling inside you? How can you calm down with all that's going on?
A former medical coder and medical writer, I've been in your position. I survived a life-threatening emergency with information only a person with my professional experience would know: How to find medical innovators, medical experts and charitable organizations willing to pay part or all of an applicant's specific medical costs, who has software to simplify medical appointment scheduling, a sensible list of items to pack for hospital stays, and more.
I knew that I'd pulled through because of my ability to connect with resources I needed. I knew that most patients lack that knowledge. I decided to provide it, to minimize your suffering.
I believe in empowering terrified, confused and unhappy people with dire diagnoses. I believe that patients should not suffer insults to their dignity in medical settings. I provide information that can help you to manage your problems better, maybe to end them, in the book.
Calm down. Organize your life better. You just might get your grin back.
