    How Do We ‘Speak CF’ in a Way that Connects Us?

    Talking with your friends and people outside of the CF sphere about CF often takes some adjustment in language. Patient columnist, Tré Larosa, comments on how this is a phenomenon that often occurs for multi-lingual people, called code switching. What’re your experiences with this?

    For me, speaking the same CF language is cathartic and connects me to the world. Sometimes it’s not even actual language and words. I can send a photo of me doing HyperSal or coughing my ass off, or my meds to another friend of mine with CF and they totally get it. I can send this same photo to a friend (without CF) and they’ll respond with are you OK. But, I think after so much exposure, your friends start becoming fluent in CF, too.
