Become a Self Advocate

It’s not easy sticking up for yourself when you’re sick. When you have Hyperemesis Gravidarum, all you want to do is sleep away your life because sleep is often the only state that provides relief. Weighed down by endless visits to the emergency room for intravenous hydration, visits to their obstetrician, and the try-it-and-see approach to finding foods that will stay down (or at least be somewhat pleasant throwing up), makes it difficult to fight for the care that you need. Yet this is one of the most important things you can do to help you survive this tough time.
