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.

Surfing Past a Heat Wave!


10 Av, 5773

I came through yesterday's 9Av fast day without problems, as usual. I was grateful for the blessing of lower temperatures, which made thirst less of an issue.

But WOW I'm doing double-takes at HIGH temperature readings around the world.

Do yourselves, your kids and anyone ill or elderly a favor: Make sure that EVERYBODY drinks lots of liquids such as water

Tea is fine, coffee is not (it makes you urinate more often than if you didn't drink it). Soup is good, too. Cold soup like borscht or cucumber soup would be delightful, delicious and a lifesaver.

Cool down more with sedentary activities such as reading, doing crafts, watching videos or listening to soothing music. You can surf through and way past potential problems that way.

Make triple sure that children and pets are NOT left in hot vehicles or other places. 

Heat kills quickly. Heat stroke is no joke.

Let me know what you're doing to stay comfortable.


Buy the E-book or print edition of EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge. That can cool your temper instead of sweating through questions such as "What do I do with my medical, mental health or disability issue?" days! 

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

Faucets are refreshing. Use them!
