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.

20 Menachem Av, 5775

Whew, it's been sweltering weather throughout the Middle East, and my home lost fans plus air conditioners during 40+/100+ temperatures!

Updating this blog between bouts of lost electricity, high heat, piles of the repairman's equipment, messy floors and feeling quite drained has been a challenge. But I have some interesting news to share with you, a sort of informational potpourri:

Vocabulary matters. So does attitude.

One of my friends is suffering from 
the consequences of Cymbalta.

You and she need to know:

Eli Lilly is in court today fighting charges
that it should have warned patients taking 
its antidepressant duloxetine (Cymbalta) 
that they could face a scary withdrawal syndrome 
when they stop it.

Think. Think harder.

A St. Louis entrepreneur’s brilliant idea won instant FDA approval. Eight years later, babies started dying. Was there a connection?

I'm convinced that the technique works. It has helped me throughout life.

Prepare to flex a few facial muscles as you learn more about this evolutionarily contagious behavior.

You don't think I'd sign off 
without leaving you laughing, 
do you?

The forecast through Friday is not too encouraging. I need that pool from a long-ago commercial filled with iced tea, a bunch of like-minded friends and a few shade umbrellas. A floating lounge chair would be nice. Chilled beverage in the arm pocket. Ahhh...
