In 1959- I was diagnosed with CF. I was 6 y.o. I would go to a family Dr. and they would say they did NOT know much about CF. I could accept that.
Now in 2012- I go to a Dr. ask them if they know about CF and, they always reply, "Oh yes". I tell them I have CF. The next question they ask me is, "when do you think you caught it ?"
Outside the CF community there still is very very slow advancements in the over-all knowledge of CF and it's treatment.. GRRRRR !!!
E.R. visits prove to be the same lack of knowledge.
