In brief: No

Not every day is bad with cystic fibrosis! the severity of the disease varies from patient to patient.
Some patient may not feel they have anything wrong with them. Others may experience breathing difficulties or other symptoms, for example abdominal discomfort. Patients with CF often are required to take numerous medications a day and receive numerous breathing treatments as well.

In brief: Airway Clearance

Children with cystic fibrosis usually spend time every day doing different airway clearance techniques, such as using a vest, manual chest physiotherapy, and using albuterol.
These techniques are important to help clear mucus from the airways.
