This was posted by one of my facebook friends and I thought it was just so amazing. It almost brought me to tears because it's so true. Enjoy:
"I was asked once, "If you could tell the world one thing about Cystic Fibrosis, what would it be?" And it is this. That CF hurts. It hurts physically when it feels like sandpaper is scraping your lungs with every breath. It hurts mentally to plan for and get excited about a life you may never lead. It hurts to fall in love because ...CF can be an extraordinary burden on anyone who is not meant to deal with it, most times resulting in rejection and loneliness. It hurts to watch dozens of friends lose this fight that they never deserved or asked for. But most of all, it would hurt to not have been blessed with the chance to experience life through a CFer's eyes: No love is half-given, no day is not lived to its fullest and NOTHING is taken for granted."
