I was recently talking with a friend and realized that almost any time I meet somebody, they know within the first couple of minutes that I have CF. This is due to my having tattoos relating to CF, and the fact that my writing and day-time job are also centered around CF. I’m not so much saying it quickly just because, but because it’s so much a part of my life that it’s hard not to bring it up quickly. I don’t really know how to go about this differently or that I even should lol. It’s just something I’ve thought about. This can also be hard for men to be open about something so emotionally difficult.
- How quickly do you tell people you’re friends with about your CF?
- Do you prefer to being open about it early on in friendships or later?
- How open are you about CF?
