So I'm pretty sure that everyone has at least thought about this once, well everyone with CF or any other type of illness.
Have you ever thought about what it would be like if we were born "normal?"
There's so many things that would be different in my life if I never had Cystic Fibrosis.
Here's some examples...
1.) I could be deathly afraid of needles.
2.) I would probably care more about myself than others.
3.) I would complain about having a cold.
4.) I wouldn't have to get up at 4:30 am on school days.
5.) I would think Pseudomonas, Xopenex, Pulmozyme(ect.) were all foreign words. :)
6.) I wouldn't make people wince daily when I cough.
7.) I wouldn't have to miss more than 60 days of school each year.
And the list could go on and on!!
If you really think about it, you could be thinking all day.
It's really amazing how different we are from people, but even if I am different, I would never give up the life I have.
That is unless a cure ever comes out.
Until then, I'm going to live my life the way I'm supposed to.
I'm going to live my life as a strong CFer!
