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.

You are Your Doctor's Life Lesson


28 Tamuz, 5775

One of the lessons in EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge is that YOU are your own best medical advocate. 

Each of us understands our bodies and health symptoms with the accuracy of personal experience. Another word for personal experience is data, factual information that can - and in your case SHOULD - be used for reference and analysis.

You, your loved ones and friends, can dramatically influence your health care. Speak up, defend your choices with factual information, and with focused behavior. 

Work with medical professionals who respect the facts in your physical and/or emotional life, and respect you.

This TEDTalk demonstrates the wisdom of Owning Your Own Data.

Here's what it all comes down to: You are Your Doctor's Life Lesson. The life is yours. Teach your medical team about the realities in your life from temperatures shifts to food, weather, environmental and drug sensitivities. Your hunch, your insight about it all, is based on experience that can help all of you.
