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.

Catching Up with Each Other. How was YOUR Holiday Season?


6 and 7 Tevet, 5773

Did you miss me? 

WHEW! Chanuka was a fun, busy and tiring time for me. I traveled across Israel from the south to the north, thrilled to breathe at historic sites that Bible readers learn about. I even touched the very tree that Abraham planted near the well he'd dug in Beersheva! It is quite old (experts know how old by examining the tree) and showing some frailty. It is supported by a metal post under one of the trimmed-off limbs.

There's a terrific health-related reason why our forefather planted such a tree in that spot. 

Tamarisk trees desalinate water. Beersheva's salty, sometimes sulphuric water needs desalination. The water in Abraham's well was sweet, as a result of his foresight.

I even remarked on the reality at one of my Facebook pages

Um, guys, read the bible. Tamarisk tree. Worked for Abraham. And it is still standing all these years later, desalinating the well he dug. Keep life simple.

The joy of meeting up with friends residing across the country was a world of fun.

After the holiday ended, I went for an annual vision exam at the hospital clinic following my astonishing "I can see better and better over time!" case. We were in for quite a touching surprise. I hope to write about that in the near future. 

For the time being, I'll give you one HUGE hint as to what the surprise is about: READ about how I, and YOU, can be EMPOWERED Cope with a Medical Challenge  in
