    Hello Tee-tee

    Nice to meet you.  My heart goes out to you sweetheart - you have had a rough time not only with your own health issues but with the loss of your dear Dad at such a young age and your dear Grandmother.

    I am much older than you 67 and have had non cf bronchiectasis since I was a baby and I lost my Dad when I was a teenager.  I know you have many more issues with cf hun but from a lung point of view I can certainly empathise with you.  It is a very high maintenance burdon to cope with.

    I do admire your attitude Tee - your are so right - cf doesn't define who you are and you are in control.  Hope you have a very proactive consultant.

    Lovely to chat with you.  Please come and chat anytime.  Are you on any of the cf sites at all?

    With love cx

      Wishing you a very happy 17th birthday Tee.  Hope you have a lovely time.  Your Dad and Grandma will be close to you and would be so proud.

      At 17 I assume you now have a specialist cf resp consultant within an adult cf respiratory unit.  If not you really should.  Sorry hun - you've had this a long time and will know this already.

      Going to see my consultant tomorrow, who is also a specialist in cf/bronchiectasis.  We need to discuss the nebbed Tobramycin I have been on and my intolerance to Azithromycin.  Also looking after my little 4 year old gd who has just started school today but they stagger attendance for a couple of weeks.  

      This is why I am writing this post to you sweet in the early hours, to make sure I get to wish you a very happy birthday.  Have a good one.  Will chat again I hope.

      With love cx

    Dear Tee tee

    I am old enough to be your granny and I would love to give you a hug.

    You have been so brave. CF is so difficult to deal with. I have bronchiectasis which I have had since I was a baby and I know that what you have is far worse.

    I hope you have someone you can talk to about your anxieties and fears. This is a lot for someone so young to cope with.

    I hope you get the transplant and that you will feel much better. You are YOU not your illness.

    Love. X

    A very happy birthday to you Tee-Tee. Hope you enjoy your special day.

    I am so sorry that you have had so much stress and ill health in your young life.

    I do not suffer with cf so really can't help you with that, I have bronchiectasis. I can only hope you get the help and support you deserve and need. 

    Take care xxx
