    who are you

    My name is Blake


    Blake is my middle name


    I'm a guy


    I'll be 21 June 2nd (woo!)


    I grew up in Tennessee


    My doctors at Vanderbilt (Nashville TN) are AMAZING


    TN insurance (TennCare) is the most HORRIBLE program in existance


    I have been staying in Arizona for the past three months for work/education, I really love the area here, but REALLY don't like the people here (no offense David)
    I will soon be moving to California for insurance purposes


    I was dx (diagnosed) from day 1 (my older brother had CF)


    I weigh 180 pounds, and am 5'11


    My PFT's are currently 115, I've gotten them as high as almost 130


    Up until last September I was a professional dancer / actor in musical theatre


    I used to be VERY fit and muscular, but sadly that has changed ever since I stopped dancing


    I have been to 8 different countries


    I want a wife and kids more than just about anything


    I am too afraid of the results to get tested


    I am very afraid of diabetes


    I have a dog back in TN and I miss him very very much


    I LOVE Steak and Chinese... and Teryaki suace... and Chik-Fil-A


    I'm addicted to Chocolate Pudding and Chocolate milk, but I don't like plain chocolate


    I eat more cereal than anyone I've ever met in my entire life


    I take 10 Creon20 capsules with each meal


    I think that the Creon "More EXTRA Helpings" program is the best thing ever


    I LOVE freaking people out by taking all of my pills and vids in one swallow


    I grew up in the south but there's nothing that bugs me more than horrible grammar


    I am a Christian, but I am deathly tired of religion



    I'm either very distant and thoughtful, or very funny and the life of the party


    I'm hardly ever angry, and very kind hearted


    I really wish I could control when to be thoughtful and when to be funny


    I am very ashamed to say it, but I'm ADDICTED to myspace


    I very rarely talk about my CF because I don't like when people pity me or give me special treatment due to my health




    When I start typing something out, I don't stop, and it always comes out three pages longer than needed.


    I have never met anyone with CF other than my brother, so I would love to talk if anyone so desired.

    who are you

    For anyone new..

    My name Jennifer
    I'm a girl
    I'm 34
    I live in NJ
    I was dx (diagnosed) at 29 years old, after years of being tested for TB and HIV I my pancreas finally went south.. and a wonderful amazing doctor in NYC linked my cough with my tummy issues.
    I weigh around way to much and I have 5'2 1/2 and shrinking by the day from steorid use and bone loss
    My PFT's are better then most ppl who DON"T have CF
    I work as an Emergency Room Registered Nurse since May of this year. before that I was a Daycare Teacher and a Day Care Director.....
    I have a thing for making people feel loved and I am passionate about the people I love...
    I have a thing for feeling loved... Their is no better feeling in all the world to me
    I'm single and inpatiently waiting.......
    I don't like dogs or cats or anything that sheds or makes a mess besides for babies, I don't like being in pain, sickness or when I am way to afraid of what other people think of me....I don't like to live in fear of waiting for the other shoe to drop, though I usually do. I don't like to be told that I can't do something because of my health..The thing I don't like the most is when a doctor can't figure out what is wrong with you he blames the patient...instead of admiting he doesn't know...
    I like when people are compassionate toward one another and when I see someone smile. I like to be around my friends and people that love me. I like when people don't pretend to be better then others.. no matter what.

    I'm 24

    I live in NJ

    I was dx (diagnosed) at 1.5 yrs old

    I weigh 136 lbs and I am 5'3" (I am pregnant)

    My PFT's are good-fev1, 75%.

    I have 8 brothers and sisters-1 blood sibling, the rest are biologically my cousins, (I was adopted by my aunt) ,myself and another 2nd cousin are the only ones with Cf.

    I own my own home and love decorating/interior design.

    I recently got pregnant after a lot of planning and I'm going to be a stay at home mom.

    I have a thing for shoes too-mostly UGGs, and boxers (dogs), and for traveling-I've been around the world.

    I'm happily married.

    I like dogs not cats, again-boxers.

    I like Mexican food, pasta and anything salty-chips, popcorn...ah..

    I'm very proactive about my cf care, very into natural supplements and nutrition.

    I love decorating, party planning, and making cakes-my favorite movie channel is the Food Network. I love the cake contests! I've made fondant cakes for baby and bridal showers and other parties.

    Spirituality and faith is a very important part of my life.

    Both of my biological parents are currently in prison-So if you come from a bad place don't ever think you can't overcome it and live a normal life. B/c other than my Cf-my life is pretty DARN GOOD!!!!!!



    and thats all I got I guess.....Peace to everyone!!!

    who are you

    "Favorite foods: A good cheesy pizza " .... ooooooo REAL NY PIZZA .... ooooooooo I miss that. Used to get a good pie down on rt. 52.

    They don't even know what 'pie' is out here. Finally got a real new yorker who opened pizzaria's out here, but, the food is different. The ingrediants aren't the same quality as back east. oh well. good with the bad.
