The following was heard at and around the Thanksgiving table where we went for dinner:
1. “You do that again to me and I will take this knife and stab you!”
At the table, said by a man to his five year old daughter.
2. “It would be cool to get one of those 3D television sets. Then you could watch porn and watch the guy shooting right at you.”
At the table, said by the same guy, as we watched the football game as we ate dinner.
3. “This is what I want to get tomorrow. We have too many rabbits outside our backyard.”
Same guy, pointing to a Black Friday ad for a gun.
I can’t make this stuff up. This man is not a blood relative and made me extra thankful for my husband.

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.
