Breathe In #42 – Taboo Topics: Genetics, Sex, Death, Alternative Remedies and more

With the trio reunited, Gunnar and the Salty Cysters take on some Taboo Topics in the CF World. Tiffany recounts a powerful moment before her transplant surgery when she was faced with coming to grips with a life changing surgery or immediate demise, while the Gunnar and Lea talk about some fears associated with Death. The group talks about sexual health and how it is a normal part of life for everyone (people with CF included!), and although there can be some physical barriers (feeding tubes, and IV’s included), nothing is insurmountable with a little imagination. The conversation turns to genetic ethics, comparing illness between patients, and do PFT machines harbor bacteria? Listener discretion is advised for this episode.
