tongue  Hi everyone!
I am a 23 year old female with CF living in the UK.  I have been reading the messages posted on this sight for a while now before I plucked up the courage to join!  It was so encouraging for me that other people go through the same emotions and feelings as I do about having CF.  I think because we are generally encouraged not to 'mix' that sometimes you really feel isolated at times.
I was diagnosed with CF at a couple of months old and luckily kept quite well when I was growing up.  I think it was to do with my stubborn nature and amount of sports I did! However, over the last few years since about 16 or 17 I have noticed a bit of a decline (I know this is what happens) although I do still keep fairly well.  I think the treatment in the UK differs slightly to that of other parts.  A lot of you guys talk about using a 'vest' of some type, which I have heard of but it is not so readily available in the uk yet.  I am really keen to have a chat with anyone on the forum if anyone has any questions, or wants to let off some steam. Thanks guys!  Hope to be chatting with you all soon!

Hello LJ and welcome!  That is great that you have kept active and well all these years.  I have been trying to get my little boy into sports and to get active to no avail,  it just isn't his "cup of tea".  May you stay fairly well. And again, welcome! :-)
