Having CF makes making friends a bit more difficult. I can't do the "normal" thing, make a friend and have it turn into something good. I have to be careful because not all people want to deal with someone who has a life threatening illness. And its difficult to start a friendship when you are not always able to be around. I can't just drop everything and go out on a Saturday afternoon. If I feel shitty I can't go. If I haven't had a treatment in a while I have to make sure I do one before going. Then there is the explaining why you can't do things, or why the friendship has to have limits. Its just so frustrating.
I need friends up in MA, but its hard to make them. I have never made friends easily to begin with and now I feel like its next to impossible to make them.
