I always love when we run into friends we haven't seen in a while. Usually right after my mom or dad says, "this is Paige, you probably don't recognize her", which is usually true because most of my parents friends haven's seen me since I was very young. I love it when they say...so you're the little "sick kid", or "you're the one". I laugh everytime they say that. It makes me wonder if they actually know what I have, or if they are afraid they will hurt my feelings asking me how i'm doing, thinking I may be sick or something.
You see, many people don't realize how far CF has come. Most people don't realize the research that has been coming out, and most people haven't heard about the cure. I wonder if people really.
Now, I hope that it doesn't bother you if someone says, "you're the one", or the little "sick kid", because in all fairness--they have no idea about CF.
I hope that we are able to start educating and get around to the different states and start to educate people about CF, and how just because you are a person who lives with CF or anyother kind of illness, that you are NOT different. I wish you all a very wonderful day! and remember,
