Oh Duchess (or Princess) I feel for you.
Hyperemisis ins not just morning sickness it is really hell, absolute and total hell. It was wanting to die but knowing you wanted your baby. It was actually considering abortion. It was going on anti nausea meds meant for cancer patients. It was painful. I have had experienced it complete with home IV therapy.
Whats worse is unless you have been there, you can't understand.
Hyperemesis can cause re-emergence of depression or anxiety. It is very lonely.
I remember wanting to hit anyone who brushed me off as having morning sickness- but I couldn't move without being dizzy or puking. I questioned myself a lot-- was I doing the right thing? Was I just being dramatic? Was my doctor treating me effectively? I desperately wanted to explain to my husband how hellish it was and being so angry when he minimized it.
The judgement. Oh the judgement was hurtful. It cut deep.
The thing that helped the most was finding other women who had been there. So my advice to anyone who has hyperemisis is to know that you are not alone. You are not weak- you are stronger than you know.
