Cystic fibrosis dating another cystic fibrosis patient dating and secret and revealed
Engage in practice conversations with your trusted friend(s); ask your friend to be a sounding board about the situation.To avoid fumbling through the conversation uncomfortably, practice giving your friend important facts about CF.Her states Medicaid didnt want to pay for a transplant, and her nearby hospitals didnt do transplants for people with B. In the end, the news story generated enough sympathies to open the resources for her to go to Boston for a transplant.I agree with Amber, lots of fish in the sea and lots of ways to have connections and friendships with other CF folks while maintaining proper physical distance.Mother Zoe Elliott has to separate them because both her children have cystic fibrosis, which means they are prone to picking up bugs and infections.So if one of them is ill, the other must be kept well away.
There was a certain unique and immediate comfort in communicating through email, chat and eventually phone right from the beginning.That being said, I hang out with my brothers and that would be a cross-infection risk if we didnt already have similar colonies. Bill Ravine: If youre both consenting adults then you can make your own choices.erinjenkins: What I dont understand is if neither one of us have Cepacia, we both know exactly what infections we have, we do all of our treatments and tell each other when we arent feeling well and stay away from one another when we are sick how can we make each other sicker? But because CF can affect each person so differently its impossible to know if the bugs you grow but dont give you that much trouble might cause a dramatic decline for your partner.I found myself comfortable and confident in asking Marissa if I could interview her about these questions to better understand what it is like, as a partner of someone with CF.When I shared my interview questions with Erin Evans for review, Erin also had some great questions she wanted to ask as well.
