My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

hacking

Two things I never do:
Use the chat on facebook. I don't have time.
My family (mom and sister) doesn't call me at the office (unless its an emergency).

So.... when my sister started receiving IM from my on the fb chat stating that I was in trouble in London, she recognized immediately that it was not me and called me at the office.

The hacker tried to have the same conversation with another friend of mine who emailed me about the same time. I imagine it was scary for her. Unlike my sister who knows I wasn't out of the country, she wasn't sure.

I changed my password and deactivated my account for the afternoon. I signed back in tonight (but I am logged out) now that I have a chance to look at it. From my perspective my page looks okay.

Two night ago, I received many friend requests from the same person using different names. Maybe that was the start of it? I never accepted any of the requests. I am not aware of opening any. I change my settings so my email won't get notified of any friend invites. Not a big deal. We'll see what happens tomorrow.

I saw that message from your sister telling us it wasn't you! Very very bizarre. I don't actually know you, but I can imagine how upsetting it must be. To be hacked! Sounds very draconian, too. Hope everything is up and running well soon.

I saw the message from your sister also, smart of her to post that. Sorry to hear you were hacked. As hard as it is to have several different passwords for systems I use constantly ... I do. Makes my mind work a little more!
