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.

Lessons to be Learned from the Fire


3 Nisan, 5775

My present thoughts about the horrific loss of life in the fire that decimated the Sasson family are focused on perspective.

My dear friend David Morris, head of the charitable organization Lemaan Achai, expressed some excellent perspective on his blog, today. Please join me in reading and re-reading The Brooklyn Tragedy - Are there Lessons to be Learned?

The spiritual dimensions of the disaster are not something we can easily comprehend. This is a time of grief.

Please hold back from the temptation to lecture anyone, to impugn or to insult anybody. Adding pain to aching hearts is not going to improve anyone's life. 

Causing fresh pain does not solve problems.

Sometimes, life is not about asking GOD for what we want. We can instead ask GOD "What do YOU want from me?" 

Before that can happen, we need to be quiet, to let our hearts and minds adjust a bit to unspeakable pain. 

Each person adjusts at their own rate of speed. 

This is not a time for making demands of anyone.

And if you need help to know how to discuss what happened with young children, listen to this broadcast by Chai Lifeline's Trauma and Crisis Intervention Department.

Listen in on these fire safety lessons:
