Humor for Healing Minds and Bodies


B'SD

8 Menachem Av 5769

The Jewish (and larger) world is on the brink of our saddest day on the calendar: 9 Menachem Av. It marks the destructions of our two holy temples in the holy land, where people of all faiths once worshipped The One Above. It is the anniversary of many punitive decrees and disasters.

One of the ways I teach my coaching clients to cope with overwhelming grief is to count one's blessings. It's a habit that can be created, one step at a time. I advocate the use of humor, too.

So to offset some of the despair that usually goes with tomorrow's date on the calendar, I offer you some heartwarming chuckles and food for thought.

I send special thanks to my friend Lisa Harris for sending today's content to me via E-mail.

If you're not familiar with the work of Steven Wright, he's the famous erudite scientist who once said: "I woke up one morning, and all of my stuff had been stolen and replaced by exact duplicates." His mind sees things differently than most of us do, to our amazement and amusement. Here are some of his gems:

1 - I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.

2 - Borrow money from pessimists -- they don't expect it back.

3 - Half the people you know are below average.

4 - 99% of lawyers give the rest a bad name.

5 - 82.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

6 - A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good.

7 - A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

8 - If you want a rainbow you've got to put up with the rain.

9 - All those who believe in psychokinesis, raise my hand.

10 - The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

11 - I almost had a psychic girlfriend, ..... But she left me before we met.

12 - OK, so what's the speed of dark?

13 - How do you tell when you're out of invisible ink?

14 - If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

15 - Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

16 - When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

17 - Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.

18 - Hard work pays off in the future; laziness pays off now.

19 - I intend to live forever.... So far, so good.

20 - If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?

21 - Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

22 - What happens if you get scared half to death twice?

23 - My mechanic told me, "I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder."

24 - Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?

25 - If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

26 - A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.

27 - Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

28 - The hardness of the butter is proportional to the softness of the bread.

29 - To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.

30 - The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.

31 - The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up.

32 - The colder the x-ray table, the more of your body is required to be on it.

33 - Everyone has a photographic memory; some just don't have film.

And an all time favorite-

34 - If your car could travel at the speed of light, would your headlights work?

Remember: The One Above wants us to behave pleasantly to each other.

Staying Alive: Medically, Financially and MORALLY

B'SD


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
about
#healthcare?
Thoughts?


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
Transportation,
Medical Care,
Medication,
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.

How to Have Decent Medical Care Without Going Broke



Let's do the math for Obama's Stimulus Package.

Suppose you place ONE MILLION $100 bills atop each other, to demonstrate how much he's spent already.




The stack would rise 40 inches high.

Now consider this:

Obama's aiming for a Stimulus debt of
ELEVEN TRILLION dollars.

Do you know how high
THAT stack of $100 dollar bills
would go?




670 miles. Do the math.


In April he opined that Swine Flu is Not a Cause for Alarm.

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and the survivors of dead Swine Flu/H1N1 victims disagree with that assessment.


Obama has publicly stated that

His plummeting popularity ratings say that Americans doubt it could be in their interest, either.


You're aware that health care costs
are already huge.
And Growing!


Europe knew in 2005:
Health Care Cuts in Europe

Medical Tourism seems to be on the rise.

But European Health Care has

EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD



needs affordable medical care options.

How to Solve the Organ Donation Crisis - Despite Moral and Medical Dilemmas

B'SD

5 Tamuz 5769

Lives are on the line because of much-needed organ transplants. Body parts are auctioned to the highest bidders. Defenseless victims might be murdered, their organs "harvested" for the sales to take place. Poorer patients face death for lack of cash.


Patients at
death's door
might not know
what is going on.

They're simply trying to remain alive until doctors and
donors can save them.



MANY, many lives are at stake.



The organ donation world is not systematic, not morally regulated or by any means risk-free. Click on Scandalous Medical and Moral Issue to get some insight into the problem, and perhaps how to solve it.

The "Cope with Medical Crisis" Radio Show for Caregivers, Patients, and...

B'SD


2 Av 5769


Readers, how would you like to hear me on the air, sharing insights and information with you on a call-in radio show?

Like that idea? Then call your local radio station owners and ask them to read the message below ;^ )





Hire a voice with a personality to match!
Arutz 7 (Israel's Station 7) radio, OU Radio and Rusty Mike get Yocheved Golani on the air as often as possible.




YOU can give her an entire radio show
on a regular basis!
Just imagine the possibilities...

LIVE! From YOUR Radio Station, it's the
"Cope with Medical Crisis" radio show
with Yocheved Golani!

Author of the highly acclaimed book

Yocheved is a former
medical records supervisor
and medical journalist.

Did you know that medical and
mental health professionals
use and/or sell "It's MY Crisis"
in their offices?

They say it lowers the need for
pain and other medications!




Patients do better with the book
and Yocheved's advice.

Doctors recommend both ;^ )

Her live speaking engagements are
always filled beyond capacity.




Radio station owners, I'm ready for audience questions about almost anything in the medical world. Do your listeners need to know where and how to find affordable medication, medical appliances and medical treatment – even the right doctor - anywhere in the world? Are they wondering how to get help with long-distance travel or even a short jaunt in their own city?

Put the world of medical coping strategies
in your listening audience's
ears and hands.

Let your listeners hear me sharing tips on how to pack for hospital stays. What to say to people who rudely dismiss someone's medical problems. How to prevent "Empty Well" Syndrome for caregivers and MORE!

Let me, Yocheved Golani, announce on the air "Call the number at this radio station..." so your listeners can get the medical information they need!


This ain't just for the old folks.

Just whom can the
"Cope with Medical Crisis"
radio show help?

The "Cope with Medical Crisis" radio show can make a huge positive impact on your listeners. People around the globe need medical resource information. Insurance companies worldwide are limited in what they can do. And that's IF a person has health insurance!

Help yourself, maybe someone you love, with the "Cope with Medical Crisis" radio show. Get me and my information on the air!

Your market share will likely go
w-a-a-ay-y- up as a result!

How 20-Somethings Can Protect Their Health. Affordably. You, Too!

B'SD

1 Menachem Av 5769

Sad news in the USA.
Obama claims that he isn't familiar with the present health bill passing through White House auspices.

And 20-somethings fresh out of college can't afford minimal health insurance.



America, this is not your typical hard work = success story. And it is hurting people across the USA's social spectrum.

Good news, though. The "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" book holds lots of information about free and low-cost health care options. It has stories and exercises for making you feel better, too.



It costs less than some tranquilizers.
Feel better. Affordably.

Protection and Healing from Sexual Abuse, Negligence, Psychological Manipulation, Abuse of Any Sort

B'SD


24 Tamuz 5769

Readers, as a friend to others and as a coach, I'm privy to heartbreaking confidences and information from a large cross-section of society. Some of it is about sexual abuse. I ache to do what I can to help abuse victims to heal, and to prevent new victims.


I do what I can to coax victims
and anyone aware of abuse in any form
to tell legal authories immediately!

I'm not a therapist of any sort, not a famous personality. But I am tenacious. I do what I can when faced with any problem.

One of my friends is a grief counselor. He shared an eye-opening book with me, hoping I'd review it for my editors (remember, I'm a journalist too) and help the public at the same time. Entitled "Miss America by Day, Lessons Learned from Ultimate Betrayals and Unconditional Love" by Marilyn Van Derbur, it was published in 2004.

I read it from cover to cover and experienced a powerful desire to remind the world of this book's existence and the author's deep, healing wisdom.

I have spent literally months preparing the book review below. The manuscript addresses sexual abuse. It also addresses many other forms of insidious abuse (hard to identify or to stop and therefore more devastating).

"Miss America by Day" holds
excellent ideas about
how to heal from
the trauma of sexual abuse
and how to prevent sex abuse.

Those lessons pertain to sexual abuse AND to any form of negligence, psychological manipulation, abuse of the law, abuse of trust, on and on.

All of it harms
defenseless children and adults,
trapped by cunning predators.

The abusers are criminals. They might be babysitters, clergy, camp counselors or fellow campers, dormitory counselors or fellow residents, parents, relatives or neighbors.

Anyone at all.

All too often these victimizers enjoy a social status that places them above suspicion. They manipulate that status into predatory power. After all, why would anyone believe the victim's accusations about him or her/them?

Especially if the accuser is a child?

Here is my book review:

Title: Miss America by Day: Lessons Learned from Ultimate Betrayals and Unconditional Love
Author: Marilyn Van Derbur
Publisher: Oak Hill Ridge Press
Reviewer: Yocheved Golani

Sexual abuse of children and adults must be addressed. By you. Failing to help the defenseless victims is another betrayal. It empowers the abuser. As page 268 reveals, "Silence is the voice of complicity."

The Jewish world has been rocked by this travesty. The Catholic church makes global headlines as abusive clergy are identified by victims in the choir, schools, and other parts of Catholic society. Boy Scout groups, Buddhists, you name it. Camps. Dormitories. Relatives. No religion, school or relationship seems immune to sex abuse.

Religious and mental health organizations around the world have yet to succeed with their efforts to end the horror of potential, current and former sex abuse victims in every area of society. They need to stop the perpetrators.

Miss America by Day: Lessons Learned from Ultimate Betrayals and Unconditional Love offers insight into the scope of sexual abuse, showing how to stop it. The author is a former Miss America, one among several siblings molested for decades by their high-profile father. Marilyn Van Derbur's book gives a voice to victims too terrified or otherwise unable to cry for help.

The author brings you into her explosive life before and after she revealed to anyone how she'd suffered forced night-time sex with her father. Mom sat outside her toddler daughter's bedroom, dressed in a negligee and feathery slippers, as dad raped their child and her siblings over the years. Insisting to personal acquaintances and to world media that she had a "Perfect Marriage," Mom knew that all of her daughters were years-long victims of her negligence and Dad's rapes.

That charade ended when the author reached adulthood. She left home and providentially met a mentor who helped her to face her past. He enabled Marilyn to share the details with Larry, the man who demonstrably loved and wished to marry her. Larry's unconditional love, and that of his mother, helped Marilyn to heal her psyche. So did therapy and the admissions of Van Derbur's abused siblings. The lessons learned along the author's way to mental health are valuable for anyone who has suffered sex abuse.

Marilyn Van Derbur eventually became a motivational speaker helping sex abuse victims to cope with their memories of and reactions to sex abuse. The genius of her book is its clear presentation of facts about sexual abuse at every level of society and how to stop it. Chapter 30 asks "Do Children Lie?" The heartbreaking answer is: usually not about sex abuse. If that's what the child claims happened, it probably did. Documented statistics in Chapter 31, "Do They Ever Stop?" show that the overwhelming reality is NO, sexual abusers don't stop until they're physically prevented from harming people. Chapter 32 teaches that "The Good New is: Trauma Doesn’t Have to Last a Lifetime."

The author's prose jumps off the pages, the strong voice of an intelligent, articulate adult showing society at large how to end a millennia-old horror. Citing effective methods, she teaches us how to help the victims and how to prevent new ones.

Read it today. Miss America by Day: Lessons Learned from Ultimate Betrayals and Unconditional Love belongs in schools, homes and mental health libraries. Save lives. Share it with someone who might desperately need it.

The Audience LOVES This Book!

I spoke before a live audience yesterday, and WOW did my book sell there!

The event lasted much longer than planned due to interaction with the audience. Questions, solutions, lots of laughs even though we discussed disease, suffering and even death.

WHY were my listeners so upbeat despite the topics? Because they were reacting to my upbeat text and to my live comments that put things into perspective. A sense of purpose instead of random "Why ME?" misery that attacks out of nowhere soothed the crowd.
