When people with cystic fibrosis head off to college the big decision is whether or not to live with a roommate. If we choose to live with roommates, for many of us it will be the first time we are very much sharing our cystic fibrosis with someone else. The need to perform treatments complicates this.
In episode 30, Julia and I discuss some pros and cons to living with or without a roommate in college and after graduation. We’ve each had very different experiences with this topic, so if you’re headed to college and you’re dealing with this problem, give the podcast a listen!
Making it Matter this week is JP Thornton, a 12 year old with cystic fibrosis who has created an unbreakable bond with the University of North Florida Men’s Basketball team.
