View Full Version : crazy cfers?

02-22-2005, 08:11 PM
I just found this site, and in my surfing through it I couldn't help but notice a couple of threads (cocaine use, tattoos) implying cfers are wilder, crazier than non-cfers.

Then I remembered someone saying something along those lines to me, that cfers party too hard for their own good, they're always like that, or something....

I was wondering if anyone has any insight/opinion on this?

Is it true?
Is it because having a terminal illness makes us want to 'live fast, die young', or is it possible that some as of yet unnoticed part of the cf gene codes 'party animal' as well as 'broken lungs'?

I am especially interested in this because I am studying psychology, and this could make for some really interesting research.

oh, something I forgot to mention..

apparently cfers often have higher sex drives

My BF (WCF) is always after a bit of action hehehehhehehe I think that might be true

02-22-2005, 08:35 PM

02-22-2005, 09:10 PM
I really hate the word "normal" I don't think you can classify anyone as "normal"

02-22-2005, 09:12 PM

I think its because some cfers do feel the need to live fast just in case....live life to the fullest even if that means party hard and try stuff.
I dont know about the sex drive thing, I think my is normal, I dunno.

This is a strange topic. I don't know if I'd say were crazy I don't feel I party anymore than any of the people I hang with. I'm sure it's probly more of a culture thing for the partying. I drink more than a couple of my friends but other than that we all run about the same. I would imagine how often sex is it depends alot on your partner. HeeHee.

I was very crazy in my past, there was very little I wouldn't do. I am pretty mello now that, I have traded in most of my piercings for ties and my drugs for jesus. I still sport my nipple ring and tatoos at times because that is still me too! Oh well, life is like shoes, we keep trying them on into we find what fits? As for sex, I am a guy, Cf has nothing to do with it!

I am the most square person here. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border="0"> I don't drink smoke do drugs, I don't party whatsoever. I am the most low key person. And to be honest i don't have many friends.

02-22-2005, 11:32 PM
i dont have anything to do with sex -nodds- im a good kid..tut tut all of you hehe

There is nothing wrong with not partying. I don't party like I used to. I have slowed down a whole lot. I guess when I say party I just mean drinking. Because I don't do drugs at all, I figure I take enough meds. I have never smoked.

02-23-2005, 12:12 AM
heh good <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0"> smoking is baddddd...ive done it and its badddd heh -hugs you- goodnight becky

I think it's both trying to live life to the fullest and overcompensating for our illness by being crazy (at least it was with me) so people forget that I have an illness and they think I'm a dork instead.

I applaud the "square" people (even though I don't think you're square at all) for having the confidence to not think they need to do all that. They are secure in themselves just as they are.
Not saying that partiers are insecure, I'm not saying that at all. It's just that it's harder to be "square" I think & to take a stand than it is to just go with the crowd.<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-cool.gif" border="0">
I'm not trying to stir up controversy, just stating it from my point of view.

02-23-2005, 12:22 AM
I agree with you .

02-24-2005, 01:11 AM
I don't think there's anything wrong with partying, I've partied it up a couple of times but you have to party within reason. There's been times when I partied hard and times when I've berly partied at all. I don't think that since some people that have cf party hard has anything to do with CF, I think it depends on the person and who their peers are. Since I'm a guy, on the sex drive part I don't think that really has anything to do with CF either, I'm not totally sure but that's what I think...

I do tend to have a rather high sex drive, but never thought to attribute it to the CF. But yeah, I've always been known to have a rather high sex drive. That's not to say I go around sleeping with anyone, but when I'm with one person (like Mike now), I tend to want it pretty damn frequently. Actually, quite often I want it even when Mike doesn't, and he's a normal guy. It's not like his libido is non-existant.

I think about Sexoring 24/7. Sometimes I think I think like a guy! Movies, books - dull to me unless they are about S~E~X...CF Related? Who knows. Maybe Creon 10 does a little more for ya than just settle your stomach. LOL

My boyfriend, now 23 used to drink a whole lot, he's calmed down when he turned 19 but a few months ago he was still trying to do everything fast and quick. Example, we are moving in together in June, he started University this term, it is a certificate (1 year) when he got the idea of doing it he wanted to do it in one year absolutely, I did try to tell him that there was nothing wrong if he wanted to take less classe and take I don't know 2 years or someting (not because I think he can't do it in one year but because with 5 classes in the evening, if he wanted to drop one because it was too much it was FINE and no one would tell him he was lazy). That changed when in August he got in a really bad car accident, I think it made him (and those of us around him) that well CF is not the only thing that could kill him basically, I mean he takes his time to do things now and his parents told me that for the first time in his life their hear their son making plans for the future and they are really happy about it (I mean we're talking kids, wedding, University degrees that he wants to do while working a class a semester (he never would have done that before) and even a house!), He's more relaxed now, takes his time more, I just noticed that change really...I just wish it hadn't taken a car accident! Well, the only thing left for him to accept now is that I love him and want to spend the rest of my life with him! (I have not given up hope, I will convince him!)
