Just Call Me Trailer Trash

Yep. I have purchased a manufactured home. This differs from a trailer home in that it is made to stay put. The price was so good and the home was so nice that I quickly got over the “What are people going to think?” mentality and signed on to become queen of the trailer park.

I was having a difficult time finding an apartment. My credit is so poor that I could not pass a credit check, which it seems all of the apartments require. I was able to buy my home outright due to the lump sum payment from my disability.


The house sports cathedral ceilings, two skylights and ceiling fans. Finally I will not have to worry about Tyler disturbing the neighbors, or vice versa. The home is also in the beautiful Lake County, Ohio city I wanted to live in.

I hope to be fully in the home in a couple of weeks. Right now I am having fun buying furniture and carpeting. I will post pictures as the place shapes up.

I never thought I would be able to own something but this option enabled me to do so and I feel good I am doing right by Tyler. I feel like my dreams are coming true. After everything we have been through, it’s nice to see things finally going my way!

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.
