Emily Cullen is a pen-name.
I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which have progressed. My diseases include life-threatening conditions such as Lupus With Rheumatoid Arthritis Overlap and Bipolar Disorder. My other diseases include Fibromyalgia, Interstitial Cystitis and Myofascial Pain, and I no longer can remember them all.
I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and has been the best thing to ever happen to us. Tyler is a child with special needs and has been diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
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.
