What You Don’t Know About My Son…

Inspired by Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop.

Prompt # 3:  Write a post that is eight lines long. (inspired by Mommy Nani Boo Boo)


1. That ever since he started kindergarten things have been a disaster.

2. That he is seeing a psychologist because of the things he does.

3. That twice he has beaten me up, once to the point of me thinking I might need to see a doctor.

4. That he threatens children at school and my husband and I.

5. That he curses at my husband and I.

6. “I’m going to punch you in the fucking stomach if you make me go back to bed!”

7. Did I notice my son stutters and that he may have some symptoms of Ataxia?


8. That I am scared to death for him.

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.

    Emily – followed you from the writers workshop as I wrote 8 lines as well. My heart goes out to you as it sounds like you have a ton on your plate. I sincerely hope that things get easier for you soon, as it sounds like you have paid your dues. Great that you continue writing… It’s cathartic. Take care.

  2. Jenners says:

    I don’t even know what to say … how scary and frightening. I hope that you and your son find the help and support you need and things get much much better.
    Be well.

    I can’t imagine how challenging it must be for you hon. I’m so sorry that you have so much on your plate to cope with. I sincerely hope that you continue to find the strength and support to be able to do what you do daily. You know I’m always around to chat 🙂 *hugs*

  6. One of the few things I DISlike about blogging, is that when I meet someone like you and then hear stories like this, I so want to reach out and help you somehow, and there’s just no way to do that. Even if it’s just an ear to listen and a hug and maybe a dinner cooked.
    If you need to talk via email, please know that I am available. I wish you the best and hope things get better.

    Doesn’t it feel good just to say it out loud? Even if the stuff goes on for awhile.

  8. Tendai says:

    I am sorry. I hope and pray you receive all the help you need. Maybe with the diagnoses of Tourette’s and Ataxia and the possible radical behavior changes he should see a Pediatric Neurologist? Maybe there is a diagnosis that covers all the issues at hand. But I am not telling you what to do, just trying to be supportive and help in whatever way I can.

    This is hard. I’m sorry. 🙁 As a parent, I know it is more painful to see our children suffer than to suffer ourselves. I hope you, your husband, Tyler and his doctors are able to figure out what’s going on and how to help him through this phase. Hang in there, Emily!
