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.

How to Cope with a Bad Mood FAST!


13 Tevet, 5773

From Israel to the USA, lives have been battered and endangered by snowstorms. Property has been destroyed, lives altered in serious, lasting ways.

The news has its upbeat side, too: Several thousand Israeli homes have had electricity restored, babies were born after pregnant moms were safely evacuated to hospitals, stranded motorists received safe shelter and food, and Israel's soldiers are helping wherever they canThey've spread across the mapWOW.

While all this was going on, people faced fears, misery (cold, hunger and health matters among them) and uncertainty. 

Many of them focused on the improvements going on or about to happen. Some people indulged in delightful memories of having been helped some time ago.

The people providing necessary help did it despite their personal inconvenience.

 Here are photos of Israel's rare winter storm of note.

When pain is raw and deep, reach for decency and perspective. That strengthens you to right the wrongs of life, or to deal with them sensibly.

Need insight on how to do that? Listen in.

Need to read a book that teaches those lessons, too? 

It was written before the author had ever heard of Tal Ben-Shachar.
