    who are you

    <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-cool.gif" border="0">
    Well let's see.
    I'm John T.
    Just a guy.
    I turned 50 in Jan of 2007
    I was Born in CA, moved to MO in 1971. I visit CA from time to time. Redwoods, San Francisco, and the Sierras
    I was DX at either two or four months of age. I was too young to remember.
    Other then CF I also get to enjoy diabetes, hay fever, and osteo something. I guess I zoned out about then.
    PFT's are ... well I don't know. I breath in, I exhale, I come close to passing out. I leave. No problem.
    I now get to carry my very own oxy bottle.
    I turned down a double lung transplant twice. Let some young person have a new set of air bags. Your welcome.
    I've broken my nose four or five times. Baseball, softball, water skiing, martial arts, and bouncing at a club. Yep, that's five times.
    I'm 5' 7" and I weigh about a buck eighty. Maybe 185. My Doc put me on a diet. CF on a diet. Go figure.
    Blue eyes, long blond hair and goatee.
    As for Doc's, I've outlived three, not counting the one who died in the car wreck.
    I'm a retired Fire Inspector. I worked for the Army for almost twenty years before leaving.
    Married and divorced twice. Loved both women, and thank God they're both gone.
    Two dogs, and two cats.
    Hobbies are hunting whitetail deer, watching NASCAR, shooting sports, my 1987 Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe, and I'm a nudist. Not all at the same time.
    Two tattoos. Family crest on left chest. Earnhardt 3 on right arm. Yep, very redneck.
    I like a good hand rolled Cuban cigar from time to time. When I can get them.
    My goal in life is to reach, at least, sixty-five, and outlive several more doctors.
    A twenty something Scandinavian naturist falling in love with me would be nice too.

    John T
    If you need me, you know where Ill be. Joe's Pub and Topless Bar, third seat from the left.

    who are you

    I am 24.
    I was diagnosed very early on due to the new born screen in Colorado.
    I believe that early diagnosis is important and am an advocate for new born screening (you should be too!).
    I have had CFRD since I was five. I'm on a pump and would encourage anyone thinking about getting one to do it.
    My lung functions aren't terrible but they aren't great either.
    I don't have a career. I thought I did but what I loved and was good at made me too sick.
    Buying new makeup makes me happy.
    I recently moved a thousand miles from my family and friends.
    I have three cats and a boyfriend, all of which I share a small apartment in the heart of San Francisco.
    I love satanic death metal but my true love is New Orleans jazz.
    I am trying to write a book.
    I'd love to have kids but probably won't.
    I have a lot of tattoos and want more.
    A highlight of my life so far was singing with Henry Butler infront of a packed house.
    I have a sweet tooth like no other.
    Right now I feel like I am nothing, but in my heart I know I am everything.

    My name is Darby.
    I have CF.
    I'm a 36 year old man (hard to tell from the name).
    I have a twin sister named Darcey who also has CF.
    I do IV antibiotics for 3 weeks every 3 months and I'm a big fan of that treatment.
    I'm 5'11" 179 lbs with 79% FEV1.
    I was diagnosed at 29 due to a 2-year long chronic bronchitis and sinusitis (Darcey was dx'd at 30).
    I play volleyball and/or softball a few times a week.
    I'm a video editor.
    I was a music major in college.
    I played Tuba for 4 years in the "Pride of Oklahoma" Marching Band even though I weighed about 135 at the time.
    I don't really play music much anymore although I will pick up my guitar occasionally.
    I am married to Shana who takes wonderful care of me.
    I have 2 great dogs, Rufus and Maddie (pictured below).
    I grew up in Oklahoma City, OK but a few years ago I moved to Springfield, MO for work.
    I drive 2.5 hours to the clinic in Tulsa, OK.
    I start the Denufosol trail in 4 weeks. I'll be going to Oklahoma City for the trial visits.
    I'm hard to sum up in a nut shell.
    I'm in chat just about every night from 9pm -10pm Central, stop on in if you have time!

    who are you

    Hi Darby, This may sound really dumb but are you hitting enter after the line where you want the break?? But if so and it doesn't work the HTML code for a line break is br inside of <> put that after the line where you want the break. I had to edit cause I forgot if I just typed the code it would just enter a line break....Hope that helps.

    My name is Sarah
    I'm 36 (37 next week)
    I live in Washington
    I have 2 daughters and a husband
    Lili was diagnosed at age 3 with CF - she is currently doing very well.
    I love to do anything outdoors
    We don't have any pets, but the girls are pushing hard for a cat.
    They'd settle for a baby but that is not going to happen.
    I love to read.
    I love to eat, luckily I seem to have been blessed with good genes because I seem to manage to stay about the same size.
    I try to buy as much organic and local food as possible - it's pretty easy here in the NW.
    I stay at home with the kids, when they are in school I'd like to go back to school to start career #2.
    I'm really looking forward to Sept when they will both be in preschool!
