The only threat I can think of that CF imposes, are the infections that we get. However, CF psuedomonas has mutated to grow in the conditions of CF lungs. It's why some mutations of Psuedomonas are pretty easy for us to get rid of, and other mutations the general population of CF sufferers are colonised with.
I doubt that our infections are bad to someone with Lupus. I think we can cause problems for very very ill patients, like people with end stage cancer and HIV. But, from what I know, we cannot pass our infections onto anyone else other than those also with CF and also the others I mentioned.
As Kitt has said, CF is genetic so definitely not contagious. I know nothing about
Lupus, but I think Jane has given good information regarding it.
Kiss away and have fun! ;)

Thanks a lot guys. I really appreciate the information. And just in time -- she came to visit me in the hospital today, and I'm happy to be able to see her over the holiday while we're both home.
And the kissing part was just so I know whether to watch out for mistletoe when we're together this holiday season.
Thanks a lot though everyone!
