Hi all! I am 39 and found out that I have NHL in Feb. of this year. What started out as a normal check up changed my life! I have now had a couple of biopsies on my neck and they have all came back with the same result. So, I do chemo and radiation. Thus far there hasn't been any change. As frustrating as all of that is, they have now discovered a growth on my thyroid. I am going to go in for a consultation on Tuesday with a surgeon to see what to do about this. Meanwhile I am struggling to keep my marriage together (which happend prior to finding out about the cancer), trying to be a good mom to my 20 year old and a great grandma to my 8 month old grandson. When trying to keep up the appearance that I am o.k., I feel awful. I am sore and sick all the time. There are days that I can hardly get out of bed, but because of my family I force myself to do so. This is a good thing, because it keeps me going. I just never pictured that this is how it would feel to be sick. Somedays all I want to do is sleep. But, like I said I just keep trying to continue to have a normal life. As normal as it can be at least!
