I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease at 17 and after 12 cycles of ABVD, was given a clean bill of health. What I wasn't prepared for was the psychosocial issues I was dealing with a year later. I experienced severe anxiety attacks and have had bouts with depression.
Currently, I'm a graduate student in the journalism at Northeastern University. I'm writing an article about the psychosocial effects of cancer on teenagers.
I was hoping that some of you would share your experiences regarding difficulty with relationships, depression, or anxiety, specifically how you dealt with any problems you may have had and how you are now. Any insight would be a huge help to me.
Thank you so much.
