Today being New Years Eve I've decided to do a look back of my year.
This year I've come such a long way and believe it has been the best year for me health wise in a long time!
My health as been pretty good this year, I have only had one lot of IV's being in March and I managed to get them to be home IV's so I haven't actually been admitted to hospital at all this year!! It's been a very long time since I have managed that.
In March I wasn't very well, hence the IV's but I was actually considering doing a fourth year at my sixth form purely because I had missed a whole term of school and didn't think I'd get the grades to go to University, thinking I would have to put off Uni for another year. I didn't know that my luck would change very soon, and being given an unconditional offer from my first choice uni was just around the corner.
It was such a relief to be given the opportunity to go to university, when times looked bleak. A massive weight was lifted from me and knowing that I was going to university allowed me to focus on my health.
In September I started uni, it was a massive step for me. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first semester at uni, I've managed to adapt to my new way of learning without jeopardising my health. My CF is stable. My annual review in December confirmed that. I'm doing well and that all I could ask for. My attendance at uni has been 100%, an unlikely thought. I never thought I'd see my attendance be that, especially being freshers and having freshers flu around.
My consultant was very positive with the progress in treatment for CF. And told me should will retire when CF is cured.
This gave me a lot of hope for the future, I've just got to make sure I carry on being stable until the right treatment for me becomes available.
