Where the Heck I’ve Been Lately

Absence is not the way one wishes to start off a new year of blogging but so it goes, my first post of the new year.

We had a big storm the weekend of December 19-20th and after that I could not get on the internet. Grant could, but my computer couldn’t.  We were busy with Christmas week and then had Tyler home for Winter Break.  Grant tried fiddling around with my computer, then we tried Apple Support and finally had to call in our computer guy who finally got me up and running this Tuesday!

If you’re a blogger, and most of you are, you can imagine the frustration of not being able to share Christmas memories and pictures, let alone not being able to tweet!  (Maybe I’ll get those pictures up sometime??)

Meanwhile, I was fortunate to get a significant voiceover project that unfortunately was assigned to me right before Christmas.  Little could be done between trying to get things done for the holiday and Tyler being home.   It has to be very quiet for me to be able to record at home.  So now my deadline is January 20th, which means every spare moment that I am not at doctor’s appointments, sleeping, paying bills or caring for Tyler needs to be spent recording.  After that I hope to be able to be online more regularly.

What else is going on?  Well, I’m still waiting for my disability decision, I am deeply depressed and overly anxious and going to see a new psychiatrist on Tuesday and Tyler is still not potty-trained.

Hope to check in with you all again soon!

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
