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 Life and Wishing YOU a Sweeter One


27 Elul 5774

I've been rushing around the country this past month, interviewing for employment since I passing my final exams in ICD-10 medical coding.

If you need to remember what that means, here you go: I am skilled in translating a patient's medical records into specific alpha-numeric codes created by the World Health Organization. Medical researchers and medical insurance professionals use those codes in their work. People such as me save them hours and hours of time by reducing lengthy text into succinct coded summaries of exactly why someone needed medical care and which care they received.

OK, back to my life. It's been a tiring, time-consuming, EXPENSIVE and hectic effort mixed with fun social events.

Now I'm preparing for the start of the Jewish New year aka Rosh HaShana.

Care to join me in reading a wonderful, heartwarming essay about Rosh HaShana? It's at A Holy Family.

Here are some FYIs about the Jewish New Year:

(recorded in 2006 but 
SO relevant for today!
I bet you'll LUV every word/lesson
in the recording!)

Medical, emotional and mental health (financial, etc.) problems can make life seem unappealing. 

Holidays tend to make everything, including you, seem to be worse off. 

The reality, though, is that it's a matter of regaining a neutral - or even better - a POSITIVE perspective on the situations before you.

The fun part of the Torah-oriented point of view is that GOD/HaShem gives us still more chances to get things right. 

Life is literally a do-over.

I wish you a sweeter life, and perspective, in the new year 5775.

Face Your Medical Problems with Dignity. Face Your Future with Optimism. 

Fill yourself with emotional strength. It's a lifelong process - and it pays off well.
