When I was at secondary school found out that my best friend had cystic fibrosis
I found out because another friend told me – because she had fallen out with the girl who had been keeping it a secret her whole life. Not only did she feel different but totally betrayed and too embarrassed to come to school for 2 weeks. Now she is stronger than ever and everyone knows – she dealt with it with such courage – everyone was so proud of her. She was 15, we are now 26. It’s not a secret now and she actually looks back at that friend who betrayed her and thanks her.
