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.

An Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Progress Update


27 Tamuz, 5776

I apologize for my absence from cyberspace. I've been busy researching medical issues, studying advanced medical vocabulary in Hebrew so I can assist the translation efforts of people who need such a service, helping patients in various ways and arranging some social events. But, now I'm back with what I hope is a breath of fresh hope for people with a specific, quite serious medical problem.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is an agonizing medical problem that manifests as colitis, ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's Disease (CD).

I've spend the past few months researching the problem with medical professionals. I found information that might fill IBD patients with hopes for an imminent cure if not significant relief from their painful, often incapacitating problems:

Medical Miracle in the making? See

Scotland seems to be leading the way in improving health care services for people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

“The goal should be a return to normality rather than normalising a poor quality of life.”
Crohn's and Colitis UK has worked collaboratively to launch a new National Blueprint to improve IBD healthcare in Scotland - the first of its kind in the UK. Read more about how the Blueprint will improve services:

Patients living with an incurable condition will see an overhaul of how treatment is delivered due to UK-first guidelines to tackling patchy care for rising numbers of people with a debilitating bowel disease.
