It has been hard knowing when the right time was to tell this to my readers, but I hope you will share in my happiness. Grant and I have been separated since December and I have been seeing someone.

I actually met “Jacques” (he picked his own pseudonym) on the day I left Grant. He was my neighbor at the hotel. He asked if he could help me unpack my car and of course I told him I could handle it. I didn’t want some strange guy in my hotel room and I thought he was coming on to me! Creep, I thought.

As I got to know him, I realized he was just being a gentleman and neighborly, pretty rare qualities these days.

When I separated from Grant I didn’t expect to be dating anyone until at least Tyler went to college! It was the furthest thing from my mind. When I started to have feelings for Jacques I thought, “No, this can’t be happening right now!” but I couldn’t ignore this wonderful man right in front of me.

Jacques is the type of many who would truly give you the shirt off his back. He makes me dinner, in fact he loves to cook. He mows my lawn and is handy around the house. He treats me like a queen, the way I deserve to be treated, as does any woman.

I have not told Tyler that we are seeing each other as he is still sensitive about Grant and I s’ separation. He thinks Jacques is a friend. In fact he calls Jacques our “butler” because he does so many things for us!

I hope you will share in my joy that I have found a good man, no, a good person, to share my life with right now and hopefully in the future.

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.
