The Emotional Roller Coaster of Cystic Fibrosis

The importance of coping

It is important for caregivers and patients of cystic fibrosis to learn together how to cope and enjoy this life in light of what seems like such a devastating illness. There are many who live with the disease and find ways to make the most out of life, to pursue careers, to find love, and to be good to those around them. Millions of physically healthy adults around the world struggle with questions of purpose and fulfillment in life. In the end, though it may seem that a person with cystic fibrosis faces a life cut too short, perhaps cystic fibrosis can be an even greater excuse to make every moment count.
