As we wrap up Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week, 2010, I end with my part in this year’s project, which I wrote about here. With the theme being “Each One Can Reach One”, the idea was to put sticky notes in places where sick or even healthy people might find them, with the website’s address. Even if the person who found them didn’t go there, at least they knew someone cared.
I had a lot of fun putting up my sticky notes. I felt a little like a secret agent, and no one ever caught me:
At the Pharmacy
At the Book Store
At the Rheumatologist's
At the Psychiatrist's
How did your project go? If you didn’t do the project, whether sick or healthy, what do you think about it? How does it make you feel? Do you feel the people who took part in it were successful in reaching one or more? Who got the most out of it?

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.
