If you're in the path of Frankenstorm/Hurricane Sandy, follow directions from the police, firemen and FEMA. If you need help to evacuate, ASK for it without delay. Call toll-free 1-888-697-6972 or call police! Cooperate with them and do not put the heroes at further risk.
See http://www.ready.gov/ for some survival tips.
We in Israel - and probably good-hearted people around the world - are praying for your safety.
Personally, I haven't heard of a storm this fearsome since the plagues hit Egypt long ago. WOW.

I hope to add helpful information as I find it.
Face Your Medical Problems with Dignity.
Face Your Future with Optimism.
Face this storm with good sense!
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.
