Staying Alive: Medically, Financially and MORALLY


7 Menachem Av 5769

Read Star Lawrence's comment on yesterday's post, then
What Happened to the Moral Case for Health-Care Reform?

Now check out this Tweet from USA Today reporter Liz Szabo:

LizSzaboFriend w/ #preemie
just got her NICU bill
-- $3200/day.
And the
#baby needs to stay 2 mos.
What does this say

Here's what I've been thinking for a few years already: Staying alive has become a medical and financial nightmare. As Star pointed out yesterday, some folks are considering euthanasia, killing off the sick to save money.

The moral, social
and personal expense
of THAT is the stuff of
novels and nightmares.

The end of life's purpose.

I'm trying to reverse course for the defenseless victims of out-of-control medical costs, overbearing and immoral governance. The strategically, emotionally and financially draining spectrum of illness further endangers human health.

"It's MY Crisis! And I'll Cry if I Need To: A Life Book that Helps You to Dry Your Tears and to Cope with a Medical Challenge" addressed those issue on a global basis. The book sold modestly around the world.

The revised, updated edition is about to be released.

has MORE money-saving
and psychologically
soothing options
than the first edition!

EMPOWER Yourself
to Cope with a Medical Challenge

is filled with MORE exercises
for building inner strengths
plus NEWER information
about low-cost or free
global resources for getting
the care you need, including:

Affordable Insurance
Financial Assistance
Medical Air Flights
and Other forms of
Medical Care,
Medical Appliances
and MORE!

Wait until you read the cover praise from a medical ethicist!

The publication date is set to coincide with the first edition's anniversary. That's the last weekend in August/first weekend of September, known as Labor Day Weekend in the USA. Possibly sooner.

This is a good one on comparative effectiveness--which may come to govern us all. By the way, most people make these decisions themselves or for their loved ones, if the loved one can't make the decision sensibly. For instance, I have atrial fibrillation--doctors always want me to have some weird and dangerous thing--I was on anti-coagulants for yrs until my right eye blew out...the warfarin had worsened that, tho had not caused it, they insist. I wonder. I also don't want an ablation (trying to kill the offending tissue causing the bad beats--also iffy and must oftten be repeated). Same for getting holes cut in your heart--which does not sound like a neat project for our Arizona surgeons (who failed to save my eye). So we can decide. The ambulance drivers, by the way, won't leave the premises unless they have your DNR wishes. This all gets done--sans the feds.

I believe in the future. Your messages point out that intelligent people recognize nightmarish problems. Heroes are addressing the medical cost and insurance issues, helping humanity as best they can under nightmarish circumstances.

I've spent years collecting, updating and sorting through phenomenal resources worldwide. They include free and low-cost quality health care choices all over the world. They're in my books. So are my can-do tips for improving muddled mindsets.

Spread the word. My books can improve the quality of my readers' lives. YG
