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.

Hearing the Right Sounds Can Make You HAPPY!


4 Cheshvan 5770

If you or someone you know is on anti-depressants and STILL not happy, there's a legitimate reason for that.

Here are some proven methods for overcoming the blues:

Empathy is still appropriate. Don't dismiss someone else's sadness, fear or concerns because their ideas don't bother you. If they're upset, that is the reality to accept. Condescending comments never make unhappy people smile. Becoming happy is a process, not a command to be obeyed.

Oh - hearing the phrase "Thank You" is only one of many sounds that can lift your mood and everyone else's. Here's a bit of amusing insight about how sound can affect your mood. Fill your life with birdsong, uplifting words and music.

If you or someone you know is facing illness and feeling miserable over that, find out why medical and mental health experts recommend that you read It's MY Crisis! And I'll Cry If I Need To: EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge. It's filled with happiness-creating ideas!

Get your running shoes on, or listen to some music. Snap your fingers, tap your feet, and let your heart soar like a bird. If you're bed-bound or have difficulty moving about, ask for help. Your assistant will probably appreciate the change of pace as much as you.
