Manage Your Time
Let’s face it: cystic fibrosis (CF) care takes up a lot of time, especially the inhaled medications. But they work. The key is finding the best ways to make the time for your CF care. We’ve got some ideas.
At School or Work
At times, you might feel you are bothering those around you — maybe when you’re coughing, using an inhaler or doing a form of airway clearance. But you should never feel uneasy about doing what you need to do to take care of yourself.
Let your teachers or supervisors know you have special health needs, and then set up a plan to make sure that you have the time and space to do what you need to do.
Keep in mind: You are protected legally against any school or workplace discrimination due to CF.
