Relationships With CF

Last updated: March 2020

I find having cf is hard sometimes with relationships. As I've been seeing my partner now 8 months she has a 9-month-old son who I've taken on as mine. I struggle sometimes doing day to day stuff and I feel like sometimes my partner doesn't really understand. I've tried explaining to her about my conditions and how they affect me but recently we have been falling out quite a bit. I said to her I just feel like I'm not good enough for her.

My struggling CF relationship

It's gotten harder over these past few months because I also have chronic pancreatitis too which affects me badly with day to day things. Don't get me started on the exhaustion side of things, I am trying my best but it also feels like we are drifting apart. It's really starting to get me down as I feel my depression has kicked in again.
