well im 18 years old and ive been diagonised with hodgkin lymphoma. i was diagonesd in nov 2009 and now undergoing chemotherapy since then. it has been a rough few months for me. as only being 18 and just recently leftd school i was happy to be leaving college thinking *yes im leaving college and heading to the navy* what i didnt expect was to be told that i have cancer. it been a hard time for both me and my family, recently a close uncle of mine pastd away and then finding out your daughter,niece,granddaughrer,cousin has cancer! not something you would want to experince.
ild say it didnt hit me till my first chemo session. i didnt know what to expect and it was just all so new to me. but i went in there knowing i was getting the best care.
i think the thing that threw me off abit was the people knowing about it. cause when i told my friends they seemed like they cared and stuff, but as soon as they headed of to uni or course they just seem to loose contact in me and i felt lost and confused. i just didnt or still dont understand ? were they really my friends ?
but the most important thing me to concentrate on was to get better.
i have so much more to write, but ill think ill leave it there for now.
