out my window of the hotel
where a bumper sticker read:
“Boulder Colorado, one mile closer to heaven”!
Arrived in Boulder after a day of speaking to mental health professionals; mostly Licensed Clincal Social Workers and others in Cheyenne Wyoming, some who travelled from Nebraska, Colorado and one young woman who travelled from Pine Ride South Dakota for a day of talking on
Many were also Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCs)
others were Support Counselors and one a talented woman with credinials I had not heard of before who is an advocate for clients and for those doing the hard work and walks between both worlds.
Some had been in the field under five years and a few there in the field more than 30 years… each with their own set of skills working in many capacities.
It was the first seminar that was missing nurses, missing chaplains, missing hospice workers.
I had to wonder… where were these folks, and where were those who work in trauma out there in Wyoming?
It was an honor to spend the day with them;
I learned that there is no such thing
rush hour in Cheyenne;
another foreign concept to me!
Some were not used to the frankness of talk of trauma;
of secondary stress
that is rampant across the country
most identified strongly with the impact of caring for others.
the day ended with the majority feeling that the day was well spent, most thanking me for our time,
many wanting their copies of
Healing Heartaches autographed.
Then it was time to drive to Boulder
and the sights of those mountains were remarkable
the drive lovely
the big blue sky
Boulder is a booming town
a college town I am told
one of beauty
with its shops, its homes and its art visible.
the view outside my patio of the hotel is breathtaking.
I now look forward to a remarkable day…
My meals are still cautious,
mostly limited to scrambled eggs
baked potatoes for dinner!
yes I heard from the hospital in Atlanta
a voice mail or 5
all asking for information so that they can submit their claim,
not one to ask
“how are you”
“did you arrive safely home”
“are you feeling better”
I will now let you know
since I have not heard anymore from the folks of the establishment that posioned me to date…
IS THE ESTABLISHMENT
that sat across from gate 16 of Delta
at Warwick RI
and is the famous
who was initially so very concerned of my wellbeing
assured my family that they will take care of EVERYTHING
concerned for me
and my wellbeing.
I have NOT
heard from ole’
at this writing
to say I am disappointed would be an understatement
at this point.
I remain hopeful though
I do believe that
Wolfgang and his associate is just giving me time
perhaps that is the reason
that I have not heard from them yet.
Take best care dear Hearts
