Spending my Birthday in the Hospital?

A very important birthday of mine is coming up, and I will most likely have to spend it in the hospital. The only other time I have been in the hospital on my birthdays was  my 7th birthday. I also got discharged that day, so it wasn't too bad, but if I spend this one in my birthday I will be here all day and all night. The other difference is the birthday when I ...

Bullying

Here's something from my life that I haven't talked about yet. Now, I know everyone has been bullied at least once in their life. Everyone has a part of bullying, whether it be the bully, the bystander, and the victim. Bullying in general is wrong, but bullying someone because they have an illness it terrible. When I was in third grade someone told me to "get ...

Boy have I been busy! What with all the meetings with reporters and newscasters, my life is shifting into fast drive. I knew, or at least I had hoped, that one day maybe this whole blog thing would take off and make an impact, but this is happening a lot faster than anticipated. Not saying that's a bad thing; it's a good thing actually. All of my doctors and all of ...

Oh what an interesting  couple of days. What a mess. Where to start? How about I where I left off. About two days ago I was woken up by my RT to do my treatment. He had a person following him around that day as a shadow person, kind of like in training. There are certain settings to the way treatments are done, and one of them is that it pauses every five ...

I'm still in the hospital.. ugh :(. I have been her for two weeks and two days, and I will be here for another week, for sure, and maybe a noter week or two after that. It wouldn't be so bad if I was allowed to leave my room. I am trapped in this 12 by 12 room all day, everyday. Even prisoners in maximum security get an hour a day outside. What's happened since my ...

Hospital Chronicles: 1

So it's been an up and down hospital stay, just as they all are. I was airlifted here in the helicopter and put into the ICU. The only other time I had been in the ICU was for one night because they were initiating my bi-pap, which hospital policy states it needs to be done in the ICU, not because I was so sick that I needed to be there. Since this was the first time ...

Positivity

People keep saying "oh you're so optimistic" or "you're amazing" and things along that line…"Inspiring" I don't know, I guess I have never seen myself that way. I realize now that yes, I do have a really good attitude about everything. It flatters me, but sometimes I feel like because that's how they see me, that I have to always be that way. Of course I have ...

My Parents & Guilt

Sometimes I get this thought that I can't shake. I feel like the people who actually have CF have it easy. Yeah, CF sucks but I mean, I was born with it. I have had it my whole life, and it's not something I've had to get used to. It's just what I have known forever. What I am saying is, my parents lived their whole lives as normal people. They got up, got dressed, ...
