As I got older, I found myself struggling with more and more CF-related health issues. From lengthy hospital stays to being on oxygen 24/7 to having to leave my job and go on disability – my whole world seems to be changing around me and I felt out of control. I had to stop, take a breath, and look in the mirror to see that I am the same person, that I just needed to make adjustments to my life. CF is not who I am, it is just one part of me. And instead of sitting at home feeling sorry for myself, I choose to just keep on living!
