WHEW! Medical Coding classes have filled my daily schedule and free time with lots of work. I study and take exams around the clock. Graduation in May is coming up, so I am uber-focused on completing my hard work and doing well.
I'm completing a 2-year college course in under one year. LOTS of work!
What I've learned along the way is that the rates of heart disease, cancer, stroke, and mental health problems have risen with the passing years.
A rather shocking number of people in the Western world are in fragile health. They need to slow down, to enjoy pleasant past times, and to fill up on wholesome foods, not the pre-packaged, highly adulterated stuff sold in stores. That junk is sickening the people who eat it, including children who don't know any better.
Trust the medical world: There is no proof that you need preservatives, color - smell - taste enhancers, pesticides, synthetic hormones or other poisons in your diet. Ever.
I learned the hard way, when I went from blind to sighted by dumping commercially prepared "food" from my menu.
Each year I prepare whole home made foods in the baskets of treats I share with friends on Purim. The happy holiday happens in about 3 weeks. Here's a peek at the highly detailed story: Purim
Buy 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.
Fill your lives with what you need.
(PS - Medical Coding is the translation of medical records from hospitals, clinics, private doctor offices etc, into alpha-numeric codes that tell insurers and medical researchers why a specific person needed medical care, what was done for them, what worked or failed and the prognoses for the patient's future)
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.
