Living with Cystic Fibrosis (CF)

Many of my readers know that I have a genetic disease called Cystic Fibrosis (CF). It is primarily a respiratory & digestive system disease. Though CF has many facets, from mild to moderate to severe…CF can vary from person to person. I have been blessed with relatively good CF health. I can keep my weight up, manage a full & busy lifestyle, and still make room for all my medical necessities.

Between multiple treatments, over 40 pills a day, & diabetes there is a lot of myself that I need to take care of. And some days it is more difficult than others, with work and my little studio I definitely keep hopping. Yes, there are some days that are harder than others…but, I know my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ has His hands on me. The Lord never promised that the road would be easy, but He did promise that I would never be without Him. So as I continue to be His servant and to put His children first, I continuously ask His blessing upon me, to keep me well and strong so I can do the Kingdom’s work.

>uniquecozytreasures – Katie, my prayers are with you. My ex-husband had a nephew with CF so I am very familiar with it. It looks like you are doing better than most. You look great and are an inspiration to all.

>Wow Katie, I didn't know you had CF, I am even more impressed with you now. I complain when I have a stuffy nose, yet you run a magical polymer clay shop and do so much for your friends and community. You truly are an inspiration

>Katie, I didn't know. I used to collect for CFF when I was a young girl for Halloween.

Stay healthy or you'll go on the naughty list.
