A lot of people ask me what made me decide to start writing a blog. I first got the idea after finding out that I might need a transplant. I was searching the internet for other people dealing with the same things I was, because I really needed to know that I was not alone. I found a website called Cystic Life which is kind of a social network for those of us dealing with the disease. It was great because I got to see how others deal with CF. I saw that blogging was a way that many of them were sharing what was going on in their lives.
So I started this blog. I found that it was a great way to get things off my chest. More than anything else, it has been a way for me to raise awareness too, and that has been the biggest blessing I could have asked for. I have people reading my blog and learning about what Cystic Fibrosis is. I couldn't ask for more than that.
