My emotions are constantly evolving through this journey with cystic fibrosis. And while I might feel like I am filled with sadness at times, my life is still very full.
For most of my 30 years, my life has been on the same path as my peers'. But suddenly, things feel different.
Finding out I had a terminal illness my junior year of high school was a life change I was not prepared for. And as my life and relationships change, I'm learning that the journey to acceptance never ends.
