Help get Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome recognized as a disability

So many people of all ages suffer from this terrible disease, yet there is no cure.  Not only does CVS take several months to diagnose, it takes even longer to figure out the right medication or combinations of medicine to just keep it at bay.  Just imagine having a stomach bug but 3 times as strong and it lasts for 5-6 days and repeats itself every month for the rest of your life.  Some people have 2 or 3 episodes a month.  Dehydration sets in, potassium levels drop, which causes even more stress to the body.  My sweet mom suffers from CVS.  It took over 2 years to diagnose.  In the beginning, she tried every doctor under the sun.  She even tried a homeopathic doctor and still nothing provided any relief.  It is literally devistating to see my mom go through this knowing that it'll be with her forever.  People with CVS need a voice because often times they are too weak to even go to the doctor.  Bottom line is, people have to make money to pay for doctors and medication and they can't go to work when they are constantly vomiting.  Please sign this petition to help so many who suffer from CVS!  Thank you
