Traveling with a disability as part of your baggage is a challenge. Daily life's already tough. Traveling can complicate matters.
The good news is that there's a nifty resource for disabled travelers in
Read all about it on page 98, in the middle of the Global Resources section (it's filled with info on organizations that will pay your medical care, medication, medical appliance and medical travel costs, and more!).
MORE good news! I just learned of the Accessible World initiative for matching needs to the facilities in a given location. The starting point is to submit an Access Profile, which is a personal definition of your needs. See http://www.linkedin.com/redirect?url=http%3A%2F%2Faccessibleplaces%2Enet%2Faccess-profile&urlhash=2EwR&_t=tracking_disc and let me know how it helps you.

Face Your Medical Problems with Dignity.
Face Your Future with Optimism.
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.
