Whew, I've been through so much since I last posted anything.
My move was complicated by the need for a crane to hoist my furniture through windows as the staircase had proved to be too narrow to accommodate some items.
And the the movers had somehow jumbled my belongings among the boxes. I'm searching in labeled cartons but finding other stuff than what I'd expected.
The bureaucratic rigamarole of setting up utilities in my name, updating the address on my ID card and whatnot have eaten into my time. The loss of sleep due to local festivities and whatnot slowed me down, too (but that was a fun sacrifice). I'm gradually making order of the chaos, in between seriously necessary naps.
Before my extended, unexpected break from blogging, I had promised to share some medically innovative information with you, so here goes:
Nifty, huh? Follow Me: Proxemics and Responsiveness for Following Tasks in Adaptive Assistive Robotics is quite a mouthful. But it means that these robotic butlers will not suffer moodiness or failure to perform. The people who benefit from them will have trusty tools for accomplishing basic tasks.
Meanwhile, back to my personal life. I'm thrilled to have learned of family members buying each other copies of
They're finding the information so valuable that they don't want to lend out their copies to relatives who need them, and those family members are buying their own.

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.
