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

Monday Musings: Who is going to be my advocate when I can't advocate for myself?
Nothing. I called the monitoring company back and asked if there was a phone # to call to get this resolved. There was. I called the doc back and gave them the #. One of the receptionists took it upon herself to call and the monitoring company walked her thru the process to get me on the books, so to speak. Voila, I was hooked up. I asked to speak to her supervisor to let them know she had gone above and beyond the call of duty. Then I tried the monitor. Didn't work. They are fed-exing me one tomorrow.
Now I ask you, who is going to do this for me when I can no longer do it for myself. My husband, wonderful, loving man that he is, would just have accepted what he was told at first, that the guy was not in yet and would be told about this. I don't know many people as tenacious as I am when something just isn't acceptable or just doesn't make sense.
How about you?
