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.

Super Sad, Super Glad, Super...

Sometimes there's a weekly theme to this blog. This week the theme is "Super."

Sometimes the shock, pain, fear, despair and/or inconvenience of a diagnosis leaves us feeling anything but "super" in the sense of "good." 

We tend to feel super-horrible, super scared, and super saddened by a medical challenge, not super terrific by any means.

Hold that thought as you read the blog 
this week. 

I have a bit of a surprise coming up for you
on Thursday. 

But let's begin with the super-wonderful, super-heartwarming Sommers family who dealt admirably with a severe blow to its happiness.

The enthusiasm that the family generated resulted in a Rabbis Shave for the Brave event. There was even a 

The Sommers' looked for the positive, even helping other people despite the loss of their precious child.

Read more about that at the Superman Sam blog.

If you need a how-to guide for figuring out how to feel at all positive despite grim medical news, read several passages about that, spread throughout 

Post traumatic growth is about putting a life-changing, or any significant event, in perspective. That promotes emotional progress and more.

Figure out how to supercharge your ability to cope with your medical challenge, or someone else's.

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. 

Facing fear with growing courage empowers you to make progress.
