I'm compiling a list of FAQs to post on here. I could go through the archives, but would really like other people's opinion of FAQs about CVS.

Our journeys are the same yet different. Plus, We've been on ours for 8 years. Our questions would be different than those just starting out.  

What are your FAQs or your friends and family's questions about CVS?

My biggest FAQ is that unless you have seen one of us go through an episode, please do not underestimate how serious this is. I didn't get CVS until I was in my 40s and living alone. It was after I moved in with my mom that she was lucky enough to witness an episode (and many more since) My mom now says "you have to see it to believe it" because she thought that I was exaggerating how bad it was.

We just explained the force of the vomiting to our neighbors after our dog drank too much water.. it looked like her jaw unhinged and the water shot our of her throat like a hose. We were all laughing because we have seen this with my son.. He was not amused and actually had a moment of flashback that made him go inside. We felt bad for the dog.. (she loves chasing and playing in water). But it looks exactly like my son when he gets sick.. the force of the vomiting is so bad.

Thank you for sharing.
