Hey Everyone, this is my first time on this site, but I think it's way overdo. I have a beautiful 16 year old daughter who was diagnosed with CF at age 4 1/2. As a young child and preteen, she was absolutely the best daughter anyone could ever ask for. Recently, within the past couple years though, she has been acting on some really risky behaviors. For example, stealing my car, her grandmother's car, smoking cigs and weed, uninterested in school, tatooing her back. (I just discovered this new tatoo today) She is our only child and we have tried to give her the world. I believe she is having a hard time dealing with her CF, especially the uncertainty of her future. All her life she has had to put up with me saying: "Have you done your medicine?, Do you have enzymes...etc" I'm so worried about her. She's the type of person that goes to great lengths in protecting the fact that she has CF. We did try family counseling, but she won't open up. She says its her decision and right now she is not telling anyone. She does'nt have any boyfreinds, but she says thats because all the boys she likes don't like her. Also she has cut ties with all of her close friends from elem and junior high. (The ones who know she has CF) I have to say we are so fortunate that so far she has not been hospitalized.) However, I am starting to threaten her that if she doesnt do her breathing txs and vest that she will be there soon. I am an RN whe works on a respiratory floor with vent patients. It would absolutely kill me to see my beautiful daughter on a ventilator!!!!!!I will also mention that my daughter is very social but it seems like she changes her friends like she changes her clothes. Maybe another parent has a suggestion or advice. I wish I could get her to go on this site and talk about CF. I think it would help. But, what do I know? She tells me and her father that she can't wait to move out when shes 18 so she can do what she wants. I love her so much that it hurts. I can only hope she realizes this fact sometime soon.
