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.

Dressing Despite that Disability


23 Av 5771

I've been participating in a LinkedIn conversation concerning Disabilities.

One of the commenters mentioned how hard it is to dress herself. Here's my response to the problems she encounters daily:

"... try a front-hook bra. It's great for women with limited range of motion. Racer-back bras with front closures are even better. No droopy straps you can't pick up or hesitate to lift in front of onlookers. Most bra companies make them and One Hanes Place paper or online catalogs offer great bargains on underwear of all kinds at times.

Ask your local pharmacist or shoe seller for stik-on heel pads that provide friction and pull to secure feet inside shoes.

Look for online and paper catalogues that provide clothing you need. I survived severe allergies with products from Janice's site.

As for the shorts, try Lands' End. They tend to make items that fit modestly, not skimpily."

Okay, men, let's hear some get-dressed despite disability ideas from you. I can share them on this blog.
