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.

Calm Mindsets to Help Humanity


13 Tishrei, 5774

I held off at making yesterday's blogpost go "live" due to unfolding events in the DC Navy Yard horror.

As it was, I was grieving the death of a dear man, a model of what GOD wants humanity to be: Simply good. The chief rabbi of Bet Shemesh had died early in the morning, after a horrific and valiant fight against a relentless disease process. He was so beloved by a wide cross-section of people, and still is. 

We had spoken with each other about healing modalities, and had shared lovely conversations and experiences in the past. GOD had a plan for how things would go.

I can only guess that as a man of peace, shalom, the rabbi is blessed with complete shalom in heaven. He died just before Sukkot begins. It's a time when we invite saintly figures to our huts, which symbolize GOD's mercy, and strive to emulate their qualities.

The Jewish world begins a week-long celebration of Sukkot (Tabernacles or Feast of Booths) on Wednesday night.  

The video below is of a classic Israeli song. It bespeaks the charming, peaceful demeanor and mindset of the deceased rabbi and the Sukkot holiday. You can read the lyrics translated into English at the bottom of the video.

At this point, while I reflect on yet another headline horror that ended some lives and pained others, I want to ask that you do what you can to promote mental health in your immediate world, and the wider world if possible. 

Suffering caused by one person's misery inflicted on innocent, defenseless others, is something worth preventing.

Calm mindsets help humanity.

Learn of mental health resources 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 bettering yourself and society.
