If you have a failing liver, that's a big pre-existing condition. You might want to apply for regular insurance and let them know that you have that problem so they will reject you and then you can get state insurance that way. Funny how health insurance companies won't touch anyone with a serious medical illness that actually requires insurance. Your vomiting may be linked to that. The liver produces bile which in turn breaks down your food. If it's not doing its job, that may be your explanation. You symptoms are similar to people who have bad gall bladders who also have bile regulation problems.
When my gall bladder was messed up and making me nauseous, I found one of the few things I could tolerate was meal replacement drinks like Slim Fast and Carnation Instant Breakfast. You might try those to see if you can keep them down. That way you'll at least be getting some vitamins and minerals. A recent study found that rats could live quite healthy on the human equivalent of 600 calories a day, so long as they had all the necessary vitamins and minerals. In fact, they lived twice as long as rats on a normal diet. I just dread the day when "experts" tell us to pop vitamin pills and never eat again.
If you're living on a tight buget, this site is really good: http://www.stretcher.com/index.cfm
They have all sorts of articles on squeezing blood from a penny. They also have some articles in their archives about
affording health care. I think I've covered everything I've seen them recommend, but there may be some more stuff in there that's helpful for you.
