Advice please-girlfriend with CF

Not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but feel free to either address it here or redirect me (with url) to the correct page and I can repost on there, thank you.

As my name indicates I am quickly falling for this girl, but after doing more research I am getting scared shitless (pardon the language) about the impact that her CF (and my Type 1 diabetes)could have f...
