      Y’all, I can’t stress this enough, not even as a college tip. But life lesson: communication is absolutely fundamental.

      In terms of college, I had a lot of shame every time I needed an extension, or missed an exam, or was admitted to the hospital. I was really good at the beginning of the semester, telling my professors about CF and how it could affect me during the semester. But, when it came down to an exacerbation, I would freeze up and delay telling my professors. I would go AWOL, and at times my professor would email me.

      It doesn’t matter if your sick once or five times, you know that you’re not faking it. And, if a professor ever thinks you are, then invite them to access your port. Chances are, they take your CF seriously and want the best for their students, and that includes you.

      It takes courage sometimes, but always send that email keeping them in the loop. If you feel shame like I did, unravelling that is essential.

      I’m wondering if anyone here has felt this?
