Joshland Unfiltered Podcast: Episode 7 - CF In The Workplace



This episode of the JUP is one that most "normies" can relate to. Dealing with an short-term or long term illness while holding down a job is something almost everyone has had experience with. Whether you know of a co-worker on an extended leave of absence or perhaps you've had your own challenge to work through, it's something that resonates with the masses.

The difference here is that with CF—or any chronic illness—the issue never fully goes away. It is an every day occurrence to juggle your health routine with your work life and it rarely comes without sacrifice.

Matt and Leah really went out on a limb and shared a lot of personal stuff about their time in the workforce, including their choices of college majors and how that impacted their future, how they balance their work schedule with their real life responsibilities and we graze the surface on the very broad topic of how much sharing of our life with CF is too much. That last topic is a whole other podcast unto itself.

I personally struggled with the responsibility and commitment to my career. Particularly how hard I would push myself to maintain my job and what it cost me in the long run...how much it would shorten my time on this earth. We also talked about how stubborn people with CF are and how we push ourselves beyond our limits because we don't want to be treated any differently...even though in the long run, we often are. Unless we have an amazing boss and co-workers. If you get that gig, more power to you!

Tim and I are so thankful to have Leah and Matt on the podcast and really share so much of themselves for the greater good of the CF Community.

Enjoy the listen and let me know your thoughts!
