hi Melissa, I am 19 and I was diegnosed when I was only a few months old, I have been in the hospital a lot my entire life and I can remember a time when we were allowed to hang out together. I had friends with CF in the hospital all the time, and we would hang out in eachothers rooms, play games even do out treatments together, I sometimes had a great time in the hospital. the we couldn't go into eachoters rooms, a few years after that we had to wear masks to leave our own room, and now most of us are in isolation and can't leaver the room at all. I still know my old friends and I talk to them on the phone or email, but it makes being in the hospital very hard now. I am actually in the hospital right now, and in isolation, a very good friend of mine is is insolation in the room next door and we havn't even seen eachothers faces! I compleetly understand the resions we arn't alowed to be together, it could be very bad. comming here and talking to people on line just isn't the same. if you ever need to talk I will always be here. you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
take care, and I hope you can find the suport that you need
