Why People Have CF...

I am not sure who wrote the following blog. I copied it from a blog post on the www.cysticlife.org website (where I have been spending entirely too much time lately). The person I copied it from, copied it from someone else so I can't give credit where credit is due. This was obviously written by an older CFer, but it made me chuckle so I thought I would share it with you all. Enjoy...


"So I
stole this from another CFer, but it is by far the best explanation ever of why people have CF! Ok, alot of people ask me why people have CF or how you get CF, so I am just going to post this to let everyone know. Some people are born so cool and awesome in every way possible that in order to even it out and make it fair for everyone else in the world these people are forced to deal with this disease. It comes from the same gene that makes us all so frickin cool. The gene used to be normal but when the body realizes how special these individuals are and how much they would rule the world and everyone in it, the gene is altered so that these special few don't have such an advantage over the "normal people" of this world. While it is still obvious that these people are so extraordinary they are kept in check by the daily routine of Nebulizers, Flutter Valves, Vest Therapy, Pills, and whatever else is required. The average life expectancy at this point is about 30-35 which explains why the age to become President of the United States is 35, and the only reason they made that the minimum age is because if the age was any younger everyone of the U.S. Presidents would have been individuals with CF because everyone admires them so much and realizes they are so much better than anyone else in the world. Another major reason people have CF is not only because they are so cool and awesome, but because they are also so hot and sexy. Again since it wasn't fair to the general public that these people be so darn hot and sexy they were given CF which makes them cough up green chunks and other things which aren't usually related to sexiness in order to try and tone down their individual sexiness; however, this does not seem to work all that well because everyone knows that those with CF are still the hottest people around. Ok i hope this answers many of your questions out there. If not, then either you will never understand, or you are just jealous and in denial about yourself not being able to be so cool and sexy enough to have CF. I feel sorry for all you "normal people" out there... I just don't know how you deal with it sometimes."

I have never seen this before and I love it! I will be forwarding it on to my son who is a Sophomore in college living (away form home)with CF. He will be 20 years old this March and handles his life of school, studies, friends and CF treatments with maturity beyond his years! I have always told him that God only gives CF to very special people and I truly believe this! He is an amazing young man...I call him my hero! I'm sure your son will continue to amaze and inspire you every day! May your journey inspire others!
