Even when the endings weren't what they had been hoped to be, I was so touched by the stories of women who shared in my suffering. I loved that this book wasn't just anecdotal but helped explain hg and the options we have to fight it. The more amazing thing, is that there are women who have suffered through, that are connected to this book, who are ready and willing to reach out, creating a support system for the women who contact through the website. In the very least, to read these words, and know that when everyone else around you clearly doesn't understand what you are going through, there are people who do. That is probably one of the greatest gifts an hg-er can be given, having someone understand her, her agony, and that it is not her fault.
If you are reading this review, you are most likely suffering from HG, a past sufferer from HG, or the friend, relative or caregiver of someone suffering with HG.
If that is the case, here is my recommendation: Before you read any further, stop, go back to the top of the page, and order "Beyond Morning Sickness: Battling Hyperemesis Gravidarum." You need this book.
As a matter of fact, order a couple. One for you, one for your doctor or caregiver, and one for family members. If you're exorbitantly rich, buy a small stack and hand them out to every insensitive person who says, through word or deed, "Oh come on. We all dealt with morning sickness. Stop whining and get over it."
After my own relatively-minor bout of HG, I started looking for answers. Where does it come from? What can we do about it? Well, no one knows the answer to the first question (theories abound), and there are multiple answers to the second (although each person requires specialized treatment - what works for one may not work for another). This book deals in depth with treatment options for HG, from the minor to the life-saving, giving details, risks, procedure descriptions, drug information, and oodles of personal testimonies.
I first found Ashli McCall through her excellent blog, which details her fourth trip through this fiendish disease:
There is literally no experience having to do with HG that this amazing woman has not dealt with, from the amusing to the tragic.Read more ›
