Hi everyone! I am new to this chat stuff. I had hodkins at age 23, I went through 6-months of chemo & 5 weeks of radiation, the year of hell I call it! I still live in fear of it coming back, but I am trying to keep positive. This is the first time that I have wanted to openly talk about it with other cancer patients or survivors. I was SOOOOOO angry and just did not want to think about it, but now the anger is kinda fading. I am even writing a college term paper on chemo and how it affects cancer patients physically & emotionally.
I just keeping telling myself that I beat it and it will not get me! Like the doctors say "if you are going to get cancer, get hodgkins!"
