I wanted to update you and let you know that we have wrapped up the food stamp battle! The doctor wrote the notes we needed to show that Grant and I are not working due to our disabilities and that we need to have Tyler in pre-K.
After I had corrected the income they thought we made (which was too high), plus needing to have dependent care, we are actually getting more assistance than what we had in the first place!
It feels so good to go into the supermarket and know again that I can buy Tyler fresh fruits and vegetables, the juice he likes, and even little treats without having the sick feeling in my stomach of having to put it on my credit card.
Can’t believe in less than six months I will have to do the same thing over again. Actually I hope that Grant or I will have received our disability and won’t need to.

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.
