Okay it was really yesterday except my server was down.
Here is my first blog written on May 19, 2009 should you be so interested:
I just read it myself, in fact. I think I have been true to most of the goals I set out in my introductory post. I like that all types of people come to my blog, not just sick people, although I have enjoyed hearing from people, moms especially, who can say “Me too” or “Thank you for writing this, you have put into words what I cannot”.
And I like, and I am thankful, that I can still describe myself just as I did that day: Mother, Wife, Sick, and that my blog has also served, just like so many other “Mom blogs” as a place to record the cherished memories that I share with my family.
My only one regret is that I haven’t been able to post as much as I would have liked to this past year. I guess that’s where the “Sick” comes in!
Thank you for reading!

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.
