Cystic fibrosis dating other people with cystic fibrosis

Stagg was diagnosed at the age of 14, much later than most cases, which are identified in the first few years of life.

It was around the time medical authorities discovered that gatherings of CF patients put them at risk, bringing an end to summer camps for children with the disease and other group activities.

Unfortunately, that has held true even in my dating life. Add a genetic disease to the mix and it can become impossible at times.

Being single into my late 20s, I've done my fair share of dating while managing the daily life of a person with CF.

But I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge that CF complicates finding “the one” beyond what the majority of my friends have had to deal with.

I can't think of a single stage of any relationship that I've had where this disease hasn't played a major role.

Mother Zoe Elliott has to separate them because both her children have cystic fibrosis, which means they are prone to picking up bugs and infections.

A social network launched by the non-profit Cystic Fibrosis Canada will help them find one another and converse via video-chat, instant message or online forums.“It’s the kind of thing the community really needs,” says Carly Stagg, 31, of Calgary, a CF patient who was actively involved in planning and designing the new portal.They could relate to violent coughing attacks and what it feels like to be drowning.They had spent more time in children's hospitals than in school.Brian shared his good fortune: Eight years after a double lung transplant, he was doing fine.But like anybody with cystic fibrosis, he knew you can't take anything for granted. It didn't matter that Brian, at 25, was seven years older. In November, Brian's lungs failed and he landed in the emergency room at a hospital near his home in West Palm Beach.

    We’ve created this page to keep friends and family updated. But in essence, Archer told me within weeks of the fateful dive while in the ICU, using our message board of letters since he could not talk because of the ventilator and oxygen and feeding tubes in his nose and mouth, that he wanted to graduate with his class. I mean, the ICU was telling us in the first days that Archer would be discharged and we should look for a rehab center where he would be rehabbed for 2-4 weeks and he would then come home. The education part of that is that as I had been looking at facilities in Baltimore, one of the top things on my list was Archer’s schooling. Hold the image of Archer having the use of his triceps and wrists and whisper your favorite prayer. Again, another real marker in his progress as Billy and a few other strong men lifted him last month when they took him on a Spring Break trip with his lacrosse team to North Carolina. It seems that all the many hours of physical therapy and time have helped with further healing and strengthening without a doubt. The chief doctor who had delivered to me the disappointing news about Archer and I were friends and I did understand the whys. And, we are always learning too, so the educating goes both ways. Oh, Archer has been asked to have an art show, more about that in a later entry. Here’s a pic of all of us together for Easter Sunday. I want to sign off with joy in my heart and asking you to please pray for our trip to Lourdes and for the young man I will accompany, and for Archer that he will be chosen as the right match for the stem cell therapy, and for other injured young adults and their families who have reached out to me in the last six months or so for assistance. And in the interim, advocate when necessary, pray always. Two other schools with the program, Cornell and MIT are too far north for Archer’s quadriplegia to tolerate as his particular injury doesn’t allow his body to acclimate easily to changes in temperature, especially cold temperatures, and ice and snow make it hard to get out in his powerchair where he can maneuever it and still be able to communiate if needed on an ipad/phone which he can access by voice but not if it’s cold and or raining/snowing.
