    This is very well thought out and written.

    I found throughout my paediatric care (age 0-18), it was a lot easier to develop a sense of trust with my healthcare team regarding my overall health. Main factor being that since i was a minor, for majority of the years my parents would be making my medical decisions, and they never ever disagreed with my CF team. So, for me the trust came naturally. I found myself questioning the levels of “trust” with my CF team when I 1. Transferred to adult care 2. When I became a transplant patient. Two very new sets of CF teams, but luckily there was always at least one familiar face that stayed consistent throughout each transition.
    Nonetheless, i still was able to build a significant amount of trust with my new teams, as i understood that it wasn’t their ideal interest in seeing a patient of theirs dead, so they would do anything and everything humanly, and scientifically possible to keep me alive and fighting. As so they did.

    • I have heard a lot of people say this about adult health care versus pediatric. I think, sometimes, we feel less important as adults. Like physicians are less invested in our lives and the quality of them?
