Hi kyle. my name is bill. im 18 and i live near Philadelphia in Pennsylvania. For me personally it is not true that kids with cystic fibrosis cannot intermingle with others. My lung function is over 85% and i play soccer, lacross and i wrestle. Im not saying im good at any of them but i try. I hang with my friends regularly on a nightly basis. I just consistently do my therapy vests before i go to bed and i go to the local YMCA and work out 4 times a week.  This is the first post I have put on the website and im hopeful to get responses.

Here in the UK they advise againdt two CF people meeting in case of cross-infection.  However, there are some families with two CF people and they don't catch each others infections  so I think it is up to you if you want to take the risk  YOu seem to have lots of friends without CF so why not leave the CF friendship at internet chat?
