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.

What do the New York Times and this Blog Have in Common?
22 Kislev 5772
Chanuka starts Wednesday night, December 21/Kislev 25. Xmas, Kwanzaa and holiday parties with loads of food and calories are heading to tables near you.
The problem is that much of that food is NOT good for your health. Listen to Mark Bittman, a New York Times food writer explain the reality: http://www.ted.com/talks/mark_bittman_on_what_s_wrong_with_what_we_eat.html
Scared? Feeling overwhelmed by the task of rethinking your menus and preparing them? Hmmm... I have a good book to recommend to you. It was written by a woman who needed to take immediate dietary action to save her life. A woman who used to joke that "A candy bar in each hand is a balanced meal."
Here's the answer to the headline of today's blogpost: That NYT food writer, this blog and the EMPOWER Yourself book share a common theme: You need to make serious changes in your menu-planning, and you can.
By the way, you'll learn why I do not eat fish - and why you won't want to anymore - on page 156.
