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.

Hey Teach, Check this Out! Schools Need Decency, Discipline and... Good Sense with Disabled Students!


1 Elul 5771

The new school year is beginning and that means LOTS of scared students in every age group!

The problem is more painful for students with disabilites. They must face the gaffes, rudeness and utter lack of insight in teaching staff and the student body. Learning school subjects is hard enough with being harassed, misunderstood and gosh, just name the unnecessary, undeserved and completely inappropriate complication!

So, I'm preparing a 2-part blogpost for helping people to AVOID making misguided statements and taking inappropriate actions that disabled students of every age face in school settings at the start of - and all through - the school year. 
I pray that my efforts will
minimize the problems.

Part 1 is entitled "10 Ways to Embarrass Disabled/Ill Kids at School" and Part 2 is entitled "10 BEST Ways to Interact with Disabled/Ill Kids at School."

I welcome your input. Please share insights with me about tips to share (I have some ready to be posted). I will not use your names if you request anonymity. Send your comments to

EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge using insights from a book that mental health therapists recommend.
