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.

Why the Blazes Do You Pray?


12 Adar 5772

One of the topics addressed in

is prayer. In my live appearances I speak about the surprising effect that someone else's unknown-to-me prayers had upon my recovery. It's a rather shocking turn of events. It caught an already religious me by BIG surprise!

But praying can seem 
distasteful, even repulsive, 
to some people.

When a person experiences unremitting suffering, pain and heartache, praying can seem to be a cruel concept.  Ill and disabled people might wonder "Why should I pray? Doesn't GOD know how and what I feel already? I mean c'mon, what kind of GOD is it if S/he can't figure me out?"

But we're supposed to pray. Why?

To help ourselves to figure out what we need. Suffering can lead to confused thinking, or result from it. Prayer is a private audience with the Creator. Spend time in it. Speak your heart out; pour on the anger, shame, sadness and fear. Explore possible solutions. Ask for those you can't even imagine. Hone in on what's truly important to you. And say thanks for things going right. You could be in for some surprises.

Be sure to share those thoughts with people you trust. The results can be life-saving in many more ways than you presently imagine.

Go ahead. Read pages 4, 5, 6, page 36's Shore Up Your Spirituality and other pages. Look for the book's License to Cry, too. Tears are a form of prayer. I explain all that in EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge

Buy the E-book or print edition today for a brighter day and rest of your life. May your prayers be answered to your benefit

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