Part 17: Retaliation and Vindication. What happened?
By Ashley Huckabee
My blood began to boil as Micah continued to relay his story of abuse & intolerance. Despite my inability to speak up for myself, I’ve always been willing to take the hit for someone in need. I began asking around, & within a couple of days I was able to track down information on our patient advocate. This was a great resource, but we recognized in order to make a real difference, we would require more support.
It took some doing, but I was eventually able to find a phone book in hopes that Micah could enlist the help of a lawyer. I was moved soon after, so I don't have all of the details, but the dots definitely make for an interesting picture. In our last interaction, Micah burst into the dayroom, grinning from ear to ear. Apparently, one of the best law firms in town had agreed to take on his case pro bono. This alone was very exciting, but what really makes the narrative intriguing is what I uncovered down the road.
A few months after being released, I was once again sober & back in the AA program. I reached my 9th step, & was urged to call the hospital & make amends. When I called, I found their phone line was no longer operational, & after doing a little digging, I was shocked to discover the entire place had been shut down permanently. I was immediately filled with a sense of both astonishment & pride. After years spent feeling worthless, I knew I had finally helped create positive change in the world… & for the cherry on top, Dr. X had been displaced.
