Hi there Sasha and a big huge welcome!
I have CF and am 22, and have a 20 year old brother with CF.
Some people, say there's mild CF, where people don't really experiance any symptoms. Some are completely pancreatic sufficient, so therefore don't need the extra top-up the rest of us with CF need. It varies so much from patient-to-patient. Me and my brother are so completely oppsoite, it's strange.
It must be weird being diagnosed so late. For me I was diagnosed at 2, just before my brother was born, so we've pretty much always known we have CF, and have got used to that.
I'm glad things are back to normal for you, and that you're doing well.
Keep us posted how you're doing, it's great to hear when people are doing well!

Sometimes, I feel that I should go and play with the thunder - then I get scared and run away.

I am a 24 yr. old female with CF and I also have a brother with CF, he is 16. I was diagnosed at 6 months old so CF has been my life. My brother on the other hand was not diagnosed until he was 11. Our cases are completely different. I have always been sick and I am in and out of the hospital all the time, he has NEVER been sick from CF and never been in the hospital, I hope it stays that way.Despite being in and out of the hospital a few times during each year I live a normal life, I even just got married last May! If you have any questions at all I would love to answer them. My private email addy is firstname.lastname@example.org, feel free to message me.
