My Story

I was diagnosed with CF at 3 months old, so I have known all of my life that I have had it. Also, due to some things that happened in my life, I have PTSD and severe depression and bipolar.

I turned 48 this past September, and I still have both of my original lungs! I have on Delta F508 and a rare gene. I live in Alabama. I would like to meet more people with CF and talk to them!
