A Post Impossible to Name

Dear friends,

What I am going to write to you about, what has happened to my family, has been to me so shocking, disturbing and upsetting that to put any title on it would make it seem like it was out of a tabloid, but it is the truth and I hope that you will continue to support and believe me as you have always had.  I don’t think I would believe it if I read it and in fact I still don’t quite believe it myself.  I am choosing to write about it, to be this open with you, as I always have had, because I know I cannot be the only one this has happened to.

It has taken me about a month to write about it because it has been so hard to wrap my mind around this, that something like this could have happened to Tyler and I , and Grant, from the outside looking in as we had been apart during this time.

It is too long to write about in one sitting so I plan on doing this in a series of installments.  I plan to blog about other things, have contests, etc., as it would be too hard for me to write non-stop about what happened, and I think very difficult for you to read.   I will warn you at times you may in fact not want to read it because it could upset you very much.

I will tell you that the ending is good, very good.  At the end of September Tyler and I moved to Ohio and the three of us are all together, again, for always.  I am sorry that I did not tell you right away, I wanted to share that with you so much, but as I said, what happened for us to come together the way we did was just too hard to write, and even now I am scared that it will be damaging to me.

I do not have any real plan as to how I will lay this out, how long this will be, or how often I will write about it, so please have patience and realize how difficult this will be for me.  I truly believe it is something that all people, chronically ill or not, need to read, that what happened to me needs to be shared with the world, so perhaps, if you feel that way too, you will help me share it.

After I proofread this I will press “Publish” and then I will truly be committed.  Your encouragement to help me keep going, to help me recover, and your continued prayers will be very much appreciated.

Thank you and be well,

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.
