006: Angels in Waiting - Tammy CochranHi, all. I'm darkeninglight666, but you all can call me Bee.006: Angels in Waiting - Tammy Cochran by darkeninglight666
I'm sixteen years old, seventeen in August.
I'd like to say I live the normal life of a lazy teenaged girl, but I can't. I have a terminal illness called Cystic Fibrosis. I spend hours every day taking different tablets and inhalers and nebulisers to try and keep myself healthy and out of the hospital.
I'm not the only person in my family that has the disease. My cousin Kim suffers from it, too.
I have the most common strain of CF; Delta 508. I know what you're thinking, most common strain means the easiest to treat, right? Maybe that's true. I haven't met anyone that doesn't have Delta 508 so I can't really compare. Either way, it's a difficult disease to treat.
A lot of the time I try and forget about having CF and live life like an ordinary person. That works a lot of the time. But its not very good. Sometimes I get so caught up in pretending to be an ordinary person that I forge to take some of my tablets and nebulisers.
