Jay Gironimi (rhymes with astronomy) is a man who can't eat and can't breathe. He wrote a book about how that's working out for him. Can't Eat, Can't Breathe and Other Ways Cystic Fibrosis Has F#$%*d Me is not an inspirational story of triumph over adversity. But if you like stories about poop and mucus, it just might be the audiobook for you.
This book was basically me telling me about my life just in a different voice, with a different name, and with different experiences. Also being held hostage by my lungs everyday of my life, I found that there were a ton of feelings that Jay and I had in common. What an amazing representation of just how many times I want to say "fuck it, or fuck them" when dealing with certain aspects of my CF. I've recommended this book to just about everyone I know over social media and face to face. I've done so because like Jay had mentioned, I am also horrible at expressing my feelings towards this Swamp Thing of a disease in a healthy way with friends and family. This book could do a much better job than me just bitching about my day with Shit-stic Fibrosis. Thank you Jay.
