Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.
“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf
“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

Thank you all so much for the well wishes and prayers. I find it impossible to do anything with my blog on my iPhone, so I couldn't respond.
I am home, so obviously the meds didn't kill me, LOL. Now it remains to be seen if they work to keep me out of a-fib. I was in normal sinus rhythm the whole time I was in the hospital, but had an a-fib episode not 1/2 hour after I got home. I know this med doesn't cure a-fib, but I'm hoping the episodes will be fewer and far between and less intense than they have been. I was pretty upset, but I'm working my way towards accepting what is and dealing with it.
