There was a documentary last year on HBO about this lady in California that adopted about 15 kids with different medical issues and one of the boys had CF. He also had some serious unrelated mental and emotional problems, as well. The boy ended up dying at the end of the documentary, I was horrified. It was extremely hard to watch, and I had a complete emotional breakdown (It was the first time I cried since my son was diagnosed.) I had been in denial for over three years and had become so numb and tried to sugar coat everything. Despite the fact the documentary was depressing, it really did help. It showed the breathing treatments (including how he often refused to do them!) the vest, IV meds, hospitalizations, and even how he passed away. It was a heavy dose of reality. But, it was real and showed the real day-to-day issues surrounding CF, good and bad. I am more appreciative of my son's good health and even more determined to keep him that way. I hope this wasn't too depressing but it was the most informative show I've seen. I also think they did a wonderful job of focusing on the "whole" child, not just the "CF kid": I find that very positive.
