As I try to find my own way of dealing with becoming a "typical" CFer (repeated IVs, hospitalization, ENT appointments, CFRD, getting a port, and all of this in the last year!) now something new comes along for me to be afraid of. Swine flu. Its killing us. It already got 1 CFer that I know of, 2 more are not doing well. We try and try, hours of treatments every day, countless doctor appointments, stuffing food down our throats, bathing in hand sanetizer, and this virus comes along and railroads us. A mutation, that's all it is. And its killing us. Its killing us because the CDC can't get the vaccine to us. How is it that CF clinics all across the country are not getting it!? We are ultra-high risk for this and we can't find a fucking flu shot to literally save our lives!! Are you kidding me?
Of course I want everyone who needs the shot to get it. But my friends are on their death beds! Hello?? CDC?? Anyone home!? GET ME AND MY FRIENDS OUR FUCKING SWINE FLU SHOTS YESTERDAY!!
