I am 22, married with a one-year old daughter, who was diagnosed in march with Hodgkin's disease. I have been so busy going through treatments, I haven't had time to let everything sink in until now. I am having a hard time coping with life now and knowing how to feel like myself again.

I was diagnosed when I was 22 as well. I can relate, but I have no kids. You do go through a shock/denial phase (for me it lasted a bit too long) and you are almost on auto-pilot. It will get better.
