Being a survivor of Hyperemesis Gravidarum has made me the advocate and activist I am today ! I have suffered from CVS -Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome since I was young I still pushed through life as best as I could . I had a few years of remission of CVS after Oxygen Therpy for a clinical trial ! I wasn’t suppose to get pregnant and I did and ended up with severe Hyperemesis Gravidarum . What is Hyperemesis Gravidarum ? Hyperemesis Gravidarum is a life threatening pregnancy condition that can kill a mother and her baby at any point during pregnancy ! It’s not morning sickness and calling it that is a slap to a #HGMoms face ! I survivered 9 months of hell and god put me on this journey because he feels I’m strong enough to live it ! I wouldn’t be the advocate and activist I am today , if I had not went through Hyperemesis Gravidarum . In the aftermath I was hit with CVS badly , people do not understand CVS as they don’t understand Hyperemesis Gravidarum , CVS there is no cure for and the cycles of nausea and vomiting are endless . CVS is so poorly understood by the medical community as it is to everyone else ! When someone with Hyperemesis Gravidarum or CVS tells you they are sick , believe them and listen and try to help them instead of trying to Cracker them , we are dehydrated crackers when you can’t even swallow you choke ! Ginger is so gross the smell the taste it makes you even more sick . GINGER DOESNT HELP SO STOP SAYING TO TRY IT ! Sea bands are an insult and telling us well try to eat and drink ….. Don’t you think we want too , if only we could just eat and drink but we can’t andyou need to start educating yourself if you have a loved one with Hyperemesis Gravidarum during pregnancy or suffering from Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome (CVS)
We want to be well , we want to not be sick , but this is not the way it works in real life .
