Today's post comes from a sense of frustration and wonder. How is it that my astonishing recovery from crushed optic nerves that blinded me, deteriorating health and the medical world's despair that I could recover, is not making a bigger impact on the medical world or on the public?
The evidence of what enabled my recovery speaks for itself: Avoiding pollutants is good for human health. Commercial products filled with poisons for human health undermine it.
I welcome your comments about the issue. I made mention of it on Facebook, earlier today:
Find ways to go past a sense of despair and into pro-active self-help. Feel better, get your grin back and make progress as best you can. 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.
Fill your mind with helpful facts.
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.
