A little background... Yeah

If you haven't already heard my life has been rather interesting in the last few years. It all started with itchy feet and it was all down hill from there. It continued with a seemingly endless number of doctor's appointments that proved unsuccessful. Many doctor's miss diagnosed my symptoms as anxiety, depression, stress and many other things. I was eventually diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma approximately 1 year and 3 months after my first doctor's appointment showing symptoms. I have undergone six months of chemotherapy, an additional two months of high dose chemotherapy and an Autologous Stem Cell transplant (September 2007). Blah, blah, blah, can I get "my life is rough" for a thousand Alex. JK. It's been a little crazy with a lot of ups and downs but overall I can't complain. In other words, it hasn't been an easy last few years but I've been content but stressed. I have gone through what some people would say is a lot but I've had great support from family and friends. I couldn't have done any of this without my mom, dad or friends.
