True, but towards the beginning I couldn't really make the decisions because I had wanted to give up. I was clinically depressed before even going into that whole ordeal and I wasn't mentally stable enough to make my own choices to my parents made them for me. At least for awhile until I was better mentally.

Awesome. I am glad you went that route...I was more of the angry I can't believe this is happening why me kind of way. I was the same way, I thought I was anemic (and I was) but just in a bad way. I weighed 132 lbs at the time of my diagnosis and ended up gaining a lot of weight as I am still trying to get that off. Just not having the energy to do so has taken it's toll. You are extremely strong and I do not know you very well but I am proud of you and I would have given up had it come back a second time.

While I have been in your shoes, and I by no means to steal your awesome accomplishment (4 year Hodgkins Lymphoma survivor) I must say congrats! You definitely beat the odds and sound like you have come out much better than I did. My question is how did you react to knowing the diagnosis? I know there are various stages to go through but which did you start with first?
