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.

Fireworks & Fun


7-8 Iyar, 5775

I'll be rushing back & forth around the country a bit this week, preparing to relocate.

Packing up my home, garden and office is a tedious task, so I'm happily reflecting on memories of having spent quality time with friends over the past week, including on Yom Ha'atzma'ut/Israel Independence Day.

Here are a few pictures I tool of the fun fireworks.

While I traveled this past week, I met several people who read this blog. It was fun to find out what they like about it, and how the blog or book have helped them to face medical, emotional or other mental health issues. 

Everyone seems to enjoy the upbeat look at a sometimes wearying life. Readers and friends often ask me how I can be happy, considering the hardships I've faced.

I focus on fun, however it can be experienced in sensible ways. Feeding your spirit can carry you a long way. "Perseverance is the secret of all triumphs" said Victor Hugo. 

Stay tuned: Tomorrow is the graduation ceremony for that long-ago ICD10 medical coding course I passed in August. Pictures to be taken!

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.

Feed your fire to persevere. Make life fun, to get you past the painful parts.
