Moving to North Carolina


New member
My family is relocating to Jacksonville, NC from Arizona and I’m looking for some advice on the wisdom of this move. First of all, can anyone comment on moving from a dry climate to a humid climate and how that affects CF? More or less exacerbations, sinus infections, difficulty breathing?
About me: My lung function is about 45%. I work part-time and do fairly well. I do however struggle with water retention at times that makes me very short of breath. I also have diabetic neuropathy and high blood pressure. I am a mom, grandma and retired teacher.
Also how is the CF Center in Greenville? I believe that is the closest.

From my daughter's experience when she was younger when she moved from Utah to Florida, it had no difference. However, I would not claim this is the same for everyone because I do not know. We did live in NC for awhile, and the CF clinic at UNC-Chapel Hill is excellent if you do not find the Greenville center suitable.
