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 Does Your Prescription DO for You?

B'SD

8 Av, 5773

Empowering patients is what my efforts are all about. One important issue is to understand what the drugs you take do for - possibly against - you. You need to know which things can't be taken together, what to expect from your prescriptions and a bit more.

Today I'm sharing some websites for you to learn about health problems and medications you take or need to understand for some reason.

The  www.webmd.com and www.medlineplus.gov websites tend to be quite reliable. And, they let you research medical conditions plus the treatments prescribed by doctors.


Pharmaceutical information explains drugs. Here are some links to let you better understand those drugs, their risks, side effects and benefits. 

These sites are NOT the only information you need, only a starting point: www.fda.govwww.rxlist.com and www.drugs.com.


Need to know something else related to your medical or mental health issues - perhaps someone else's? Let me know. I can try to find out some facts for you or let you know what's already in my files.


I plan to be offline tomorrow as it will be one of the saddest days on the Jewish calendar, Tisha B'Av. Jews worldwide will be fasting, praying and resolving to being better than we've been before.



Buy the E-book or print edition of EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge.  Learn of wonderfully helpful resources to help you to calm down, prevent problems and even pay your medical costs as you...

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

And face your challenges one at a time.
