Yeah, in another 'I hate CF' mood.
went to a friend's funeral last night.
I did ok for the first few mins.
but it didnt last. I cried for about 1 1/2hrs straight.
and as we all know crying always makes breathing more difficult.
so of course I had a bit of an episode. started wheezing and gasping in the back of the room.
and I'm the idiot that left her inhaler in the car.
a random lady handed me a tissue, which didnt help the breathing situation, but it gave me something to squeeze. which helped.
one thing the deacon said hit me. he said "there is no good age to die, but 25 is way too young"
and its so true.
CF, you need to take a time out and think about what you've done.
because as it stands now, the median age for someone with CF is 37. this means that 50% of people with CF will die before that age.
with CF walk-a-thon season quickly approaching theres never been a better time to get the word out about CF. its time to get more people aware. more people donating. so that more research can be done to prolong the lives and eventually cure those with Cystic Fibrosis.
Picture I made in memory of Tina <3

Instructional video about CF patients that Tina & her father were asked to participate in. She does a fabulous job, and her father really hits hard on the reality. its about 20mins. but its worth the watch!!
