Hey Folks! Here's the latest episode of the Joshland Unfiltered Podcast. The discussion topic is Parenting with CF and features super parents Brian J. from CF Riders and Jenny L. blogger extraordinaire at "My Life As A Livingston". They did an fantastic job on the podcast, sharing their stories—good and bad—as parents and the constant challenge to find balance between CF care obligations and experiencing life to the fullest.
The podcast is starting to find it's footing. Tim and I are becoming more and more comfortable with the format of the show, how we work together and the conversations with and between our panelists are more free flowing and natural. The best part is that the open dialogue is creating new avenues for future material. Plus...I'm getting better about not talking so much and rambling incoherently...at least, I think I am.
This episode was challenging for me because the subject of family and children in Joshland has been on my mind for a long time...but it's really coming to the forefront as of late. My wife and I are godparents twice over to two beautiful children—Princess Chloepants and Mr. Small Fry Ry-Ry. We love them both so much and we love to spend every moment we can with them, but I wonder...will that be enough love to fill the rest of our days?
When a couple or friend adds a child into the fold, there's a natural and completely understandable need for them to sacrifice many things outside the family bubble and gravitate toward people who are on the same path. It leaves me feeling a little bit lost and makes me think...should we be doing this too? Is this a wise choice for us when it comes to my journey with CF? I can't answer any of those questions right now, but one thing is for sure: This podcast has certainly given me and many of my kindred spirits in the CF Community lots to think about.
