In recent years, I’ve cut back on meat consumption, but I do still eat it. My diet consists of a little bit of everything. I generally eat a LOT, but I’ve been pretty busy today so I’ve eaten lighter than most days.
So far today, I had coffee and avocado toast for breakfast, almonds and raisins for a snack, and leftover lasagna for lunch (and…[Read more]
I just shared a little bit on Instagram about a conversation I had a few weeks ago. During this conversation, I was told that coronavirus is a “weak virus that only attacks weak people” and that if a person isn’t healthy enough to survive this pandemic, it’s due to their own health choices. To me, this translates to: if a person contracts and dies…[Read more]
What beautiful thoughts, Paul. Thank you!
“My favorite day!”
Not to toot my own horn, but today is 33rd my birthday!🎉
There was a time that birthdays didn’t mean that much to me. It would have been easy for me to let them slide by unacknowledged. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to appreciate them so much more. In fact, I’m now a firm believer that we should celebrate the beauty of life anytime there…[Read more]
I think we all have that tendency to tell ourselves stories. I tell myself stories about what it means to be a woman, a parent, a partner, etc. Challenging those stories is something I’m able to successfully do at times, but other times, I start believing them. Thanks for this reminder, Paul!
And Bailey, something I find myself doing is pushing…[Read more]
Yesterday my family and I spent some time in the mountains where the air was crisp and cool. There was evidence of autumn all around us in the form of bright orange and red leaves. It’ll still be a while before there are cooler temperatures in the valley where I live, but I find myself so looking forward to my favorite season — fall.
But even…[Read more]
Murphy’s law is another one that seems to be alive and well when it comes to CF. Hah! Thanks so much, Tim.
I’ve lived with CF long enough to know that the only certain thing about it is uncertainty. There have been countless times in my life that CF has thrown a wrench into even the best laid plans. As a child, I missed weeks of school at a time. As an adult, I was nearly fired from a job due to my “inconsistency.” As a college student, I took final…[Read more]
Paul, I really enjoy the thought of combining huff coughing or active cycle of breathing techniques with meditation. I find both mediation and yoga extremely helpful as I’m really dialed in and connected with my breath while practicing them. It’d be both easy and beneficial to add some huff coughs!
Active cycle of breathing.
Airway oscillating devices.
These are some methods of airway clearance that I’ve either tried or heard of. I’m a Vest and Pep girl myself, but I know that we all have a preferred way of doing things.
What method of airway clearance is your…[Read more]
Becky, this is amazing! I’m so happy to hear that her gut pain has gone away. Trikafta is doing amazing things!
Here in the US, the CF Foundation has made it possible for some patients to receive home spirometers free of charge. My clinic, so far, has not participated in this program. I understand that some of the machines have had tech issues, causing panic and frustration for those using them. Also, the home machines aren’t consistent with the machines…[Read more]
