What a conversation! Someone called me this afternoon, my time.
The caller related her several severe medical issues and that a friend in another country calmed her with the words "You need to get a book written by this Israeli lady, Golani is her name. It motivates you to take the actions you need and even tells you how to take those actions! I know someone who has it. It changed their life."
So, the counseled caller looks up my contact info and asks, "How do I get the book?"
"Easily," I told her. "Go online and order it from the publisher, Booklocker, which sends it faster than any book shop, even faster than the online book outlets."
She breathed a sigh of relief and mentioned that she felt better already.
I'm always impressed at how far word travels, and so grateful that my efforts help people. I have no idea who the people mentioned above may be. It's an exciting feeling to know that I've helped people I might never meet.

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.
