From time to time I share URLs, aka websites, for empowering you to learn more about your health.
I sympathize with you if you do not know why you take some sort of medication or feel reluctant to ask medical professionals about it.
It's frightening to take medication and to wonder what it does for you, what the unplanned ramifications (consequences) of taking the medication might be and what else you need to know.

Educate yourself at these sites and take notes. Memories tend to be faulty at inconvenient times.
Drugs are one thing.
How about improving your sense of resolve?
What about resolving your troubling spiritual issues about your illness - or someone else's?
Can you or they afford the treatments, transportation or medical appliances you need?
Solutions exist! Many of them are in the E-book or print edition of EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge.
Face Your Medical Problems with Dignity.
Face Your Future with Optimism.
Focus on solutions. The EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge book can help you with that in many ways.
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.
