You may by now have realised I am not 100% normal, or some would say 100% sane. Maybe it goes hand in hand. I do have Cystic Fibrosis which stops me from having a regular full time job. Sitting on my bum doesn't work well for my lungs.
I need to regularly exercise, cough, nebulise, and eat,... Generally I can do office work for a limited time until my lungs stop liking me. Best is to avoid that all together!
Lung tissue does not re-generate. Each infection in your lung kills of more of your lung... And hence the government of australia allows me to be on a disability support pension.They don't pay much as Katherine earns money, but I get greatly reduced cost medicine, and other benefits.
Until I was 38 I did without the pension, but now I swallowed my pride. With Katherine's income the monetary benefit is negligible, but the discounted medication sure helps lots!
