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.

Set that Medical Challenge to Music!


24 Shvat 5770

I've been Tweeting messages about ideas in

and in this blog. Here they are:

Terrified of your medical situation? Calm down by seeing it as a game. Play to win your goals. Refuse to be frenzied.

Need solutions for Costly, Confusing & Complicated Medical Care? Treat yourself as your best friend. Stay on task.

List your needs & goals. Set priorities. Check off your to-do list as you accomplish them.

Nurture yourself with good food, good music, good reading, good vocabulary. Skip scary words. Speak reassuringly on purpose.

Laugh out loud. Share jokes, funny videos, stories and pleasant thoughts. Look back & appreciate your accomplishments.

Optimism can be self-taught. And it SAVES LIVES! Don't feel optimistic? Fake it until you do ;^ )


I suspect that my non-American readers
have not seen this video.
is the only word I can say about it,
other than sighing deeply with admiration.

Re-read those Tweets above. Patrick Henry Hughes uses those ideas intuitively. They can be learned and they can take you far.

Consider setting your life, and that medical challenge, to music. Or a cause. Let me know how you grow.

Need to learn a bit more about how he (and I) approach life and its challenges?

Selecting a medical insurance plan that has great coverage and is affordable can be a difficult task, especially in the current state
of the economy. Still, health is our most valuable asset and it is very important to protect it as much as possible.
Thus it is essential to truly understand the importance of global medical insurance and who to go about finding it.

Thanks for sharing that interesting option, Karel. I can't recommend or vouch for it to my readers and blog visitors. Researching and selecting insurance coverage is a personal matter. Best, YG
