Hi, my name is Tiffany and I need medication!

2
As an adult living with Cystic Fibrosis one of the realities is that there is no cure.  So, we are actively trying to manage symptoms.  As a result, I am on quite a bit of maintenance medication. Let me clearly say that I am thankful for the science, research, and development that goes into medications.  Without them, I would not be able to have the quality of life that I enjoy. 

(I don’t want to post this without the following disclaimer: Always consult your medical specialist or CF Doc when determining which course of cystic fibrosis treatment is best for you or your loved ones.)

Does this qualify for an intervention? (I'm sure you would embrace an intervention, if that was the problem). :-)

I think a shopping or a Starbuck's would be great intervention....don't you think?
