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.

A Fond Look at Life and the Future

B'SD

2 Tevet, 5776


Today's the last day of Hanuka 5776, and I'm basking in the glow of many wonderful warm memories of the party I threw this week.

Over 50 celebrants shared the light of a wonderful holiday with me. Here are a few of the many photos I took, a fond look at life, loved ones, and the future before me.










I am grateful for the blessing of marvelous friends of many nationalities and outlooks, and the ability to be a hostess. 

It's been a long, hard effort to reach this reality.  It came with focused effort, spiritual growth, and a refusal to surrender to pain, dismissive medical mindsets and other setbacks. I hope that I have helped other people to see better realities along the way.


It is an astonishing blessing to use my eyes 
to see the miracles and wonders before me.

That I see at all is a HUGE miracle.

And that was only possible because I made seeing again a goal, strengthening my once traumatized body as much as possible and doing things that left me smiling.
