March 20, 2009-Life is tough with CF!

Life is so tough for those of us with CF. It's full of challenges! Everybody has challenges but we seem to have more than our share. I have read lots of blogs now about individual experiences and I haven't met ANY of us that don't have lots of fight in us...we are a tough lot. I have noticed how blessed most of us have been by putting someone in our life that accept's us and love's us and support's us unconditionally. Is that the hidden blessing in being born with such a disease? Lots of people don't ever get to experience that kind of love, yet we do. It's amazing that God provides us with what we need in life to survive. The will to survive is something that I believe we will never comprehend because I don't comprehend it myself. The times I've wanted to give up and there's just that little piece of something that just pushes me on. Is that God? I have to believe that it is. I know it's real, it feels real. I'm also amazed at how God has provided people to care for our disease knowing that the outcome is not always what they want for us, but yet they fight with us and for us. What a blessed gift to have. Fight for faith in all we do and we will perservere. I know I will, I believe that with all my heart.

Peace & Love, Amy

  2. Hello Amy, This is such a beautiful post. I too have sometimes felt like it would be so much easier to just let go but I also keep pressing on and have that "fight" you wrote about! I have CF too and am 30. I lost my sister to CF when I was 15 and she was 14. Her strength and fight reminds me not to give up! I found your blog through Sara's blog and I love this CF blog community. I'll be checking back!! God Bless, Sharlie
