Something kind of neat that happened recently. I found a link online to a group of women who have something in common with me...they are married to men with cystic fibrosis! You have absolutely no idea what kind of an impact this has on me. I have been married almost 13 years and I always had the feeling that I was very, very alone. After all, CFers are not supposed to be adults with spouses and lives! I have, in 13 years, never met another person who was married to someone with CF. I have only heard of 2 in Missouri, and we've never had the pleasure. Truly, there is not another soul who can exactly grasp the ins-and-outs of what it is like to live a day-to-day life as a spouse to someone with CF unless it is another CF wife. I was astonished to see that this group had 85+ members (all across the world)!! What a blessing it has been, and in such a short time I have learned so much and my world has gotten so much bigger!
If you are a CF wife who is stumbling across my blog and would like to join this group, please send me a message and I'll get you involved. It is a wonderful group of ladies!
Here are two more great CF links if you are interested:
