Three years ago 4/8/2016 I had my fourth child. My husband and I couldnt wait for the fun we were going to have with just one around since our older kids had already moved on. Little did we know all these years I had been getting sick, and the fact that I vomited through the whole pregnancy from month one to birth actually was because I have C.V.S(Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome) and it was slowly getting worse. After my son was born and since then it has been one hell of a battle. The first year of my sons life I was so sick my husband truly thought I was going to die. My body was so dehydrated that I couldn’t breast feed because my milk was absorbed into my own body, I was in and out of the emergency room and triage 28 times or more. The second year was just as bad as the first year with almost the same amount of trips to the ER, and a couple overnight stays. this third year has been better, but I have learned to never go to far from home where it is safe in case I need to collapse at moments notice. I miss most of the holidays, and big family events because the stress causes me to go through a sick cycle no matter how hard I try an stay calm.
I now cannot work a normal job because it is not safe for me too, and I have yet to find an employer who is okay with the issues surrounding my illness. you go from being just fine to being so sick you cant come to work for a week or two. (without being let go). Its not like I have the option I literally cannot get out of bed during a cycle. My c.v.s. literally will kick in while I am up doing things thinking I am fine and then I am down for three days to two weeks vomiting for about 12 to 14 hours a day. Lets just say the re-coop days are seriously important too, because if I am not careful I can lapse right back into a sick cycle. I never go shopping by myself anymore because I have had to have some one come get me from the store because I couldn’t drive it had hit me so hard.
My c.v.s has taken a serious toll on my body inside and out, and on my family. My husband has missed so much work in the last three years it has put us seriously behind on everything especially since I am not working anymore. Since I have been going through years of fighting C.V.S, severe dehydration, and vitamin depletion My teeth are falling apart. My canine literally split in two on 8/5/2019. I feel like our lives are falling apart in front of us and I don’t know what to do, I am sitting here bawling as I write this because I don’t ask for money, it doesn’t feel right to ask people I don’t know for help I was taught better then that, taught to do it myself period no excuses, but I am out of options. My dentist tells me that it is going to cost so much I just want to die dental insurance is a joke they pretty much will help us with nothing. We are so behind on things because this sickness has really taken it out of me, and my husband. This is not what it was supposed to be like raising our last child. We had everything planned out this time, financials in order, got everything together and thought we were on our way to our dreams, and I feel like all because of me everything is ruined and going in the gutter. please please someone help us change things. Between what my dentist says it is going to cost me, and to actually catch up to where we are even again I am asking, no I will get this right BEGGING for your help!!! $100,000.
