    I don't hun but I can tell you that I used to work with a girl with CF.
    She left to open a string of hairdressers! She's fabulous. She must be 34,35 now and is über successful.
    You have the strength hun xx

    Haven't got any experience personally but didn't want to read and run.

    I know one girl though who is 21 and plays professional hockey and has a completely normal and full filling life.

    Big hugs xxxx

    My friends niece has CF and she's a happy normal healthy little girl who occasionally has to go to hospital for check ups. I think her parents do have to be a bit more careful when she gets colds etc but managing it is just part of their life now :)

    Sorry about the diagnosis but as the girls said kids/adults do live v fulfilling lives with it esp if diagnosed early and treated well throughout life. My bestfriends 2nd child has CF and she is a full of beans, bright and gorgeous 5 yr old. They do have to work harder with Mairi than the others but it's not part of their routine. Hope the CF foundation charity can provide more help, support and guidance's well as you'd docs etc.. Good luck Hun xx

    Thanks girls . I've be chatting on the irish forum and its manageable there are a few things I need to do though . We will need to move shortly our huse is damp and covered in mould in the bedrooms . So im going to speak to my land-lord about either sorthing it or finishing our lease due to unsafe living conditions . In the mean time Im going to buy a d-humidifier

    My cousin has CF he is 25 and is a very sucessful chef. He wasnt diagnosed untill he was 12 (he was been tret for chronic asthma!) He does have to take over 20 tablets a day and picks up colds/bugs v easy. But he leads a normal life. He also runs an internet blog. If your on fb there is a page on there with such insperational stories....people climbing mountains/running marathons etc.
