Gross, embarrassing things that come with CF!

I'll add a couple:
  1. The most annoying thing I get is if I'm in the middle row of anything and I get what I call a "Spasm of Coughing" - It's a rare occur ace (Usually I need an antibiotic), but when it happens it's impossible to catch my breath and try run to a toilet / anywhere away to cough out the "Different from normal" phlegm. The phlegm is very fine and clear like 7up as opposed to thick and green! (Anyone else get this kind of cough?)
  2. The fact that I have polyps means I have practically zero smell so on the occasions of going for a fart that you don't quite trust, I always have to find a toilet just to be sure
