    Howdy! I am Zach!

    I'm 19 (be 20 this Dec) and I was diagnosed with CF at 6 months of age. I live in the Show Me State (Missouri).
    I am the only person in my entire family to have CF. A lot of family are carriers of the gene though.
    Friends and family have always been there for me and I don't know what I would do with out them.
    Quick little facts about me-
    I like to be outside.
    Love to chase storms.
    I am going to college to be certified to be a train conductor.
    I love trains.
    Big history buff.
    Love fishing.

    I'm about to turn 33, so about time I answered this thread

    I'm a girl, 33
    Diagnosed at 9 months
    I work full time at a really fantastic non profit. I also have experience in the tech industry, teaching high school, and many many other jobs
    I have a wonderful boyfriend who I basically live with and doesn't seem to mind when I do treatments in the living room of our tiny apt.
    I am still trying to be "OK" with having CF although I don't think I will ever be "OK" with it. This makes it hard for me to talk about it w. friends and family, but I hope one day I can be more open
    I am still wondering whether or not I will ever have kids and how my health status may or may not affect that
    I'm a musician and play guitar and perform at open mikes all the time--I think my CF has made my voice raspier which is great for the classic rock I love to sing!
    My FEV is around 110% which I feel extremely lucky for and NEVER take for granted
    I will be running a half marathon in March and think that running is the best treatment for CF, hands down
