Thursday turned into madness and i had calls, emails, texts and facebook messages from loads of people and am still getting some now. I just want to say thank you to everyone for your nice words they really mean alot. I was pleased with the article but feel it could have been written abit better...i certainly did not say "make me a woman" lol how gay is that!!! I prob said to the woman that i look about 12 (which i do) and that has been translated into that title and i also 'said' "my child-like frame" - cheek :) I also laughed at the bit where they said that "i pour fluid down my tube" as if i just find any old liquid and bloat myself out!! I wasnt well when i had the pictures done and was on iv's but they werent too bad - thank god for make up aye!!
I didnt do it for me though, i did it to raise awareness of CF. I definatly did this as most of the messages i got said that they didnt realise what CF was, how bad it was or that i even had it :) Many people have said how brave i am and that i am inspiration but im really not - im used to this way of life and it would be strange for me not to have to do treatment, tablets or go hospital. Although i obviously wouldnt wish it on anyone, i have met and lost some wonderful people with CF and i look up to some of them in how they deal with worse things than i have dealt with. They are my inspiration.
The weekend was a normal weekend which involved the pub and football. The boys won. The only bad thing about the weekend was the bad stomach cramps - yes its girly week and yes - it bloody hurts!!
