      Well, I'm not a teen but I can tell you that during most of my treatment I was stuck in the house. It's not much fun but you make the best of it. Is there any reason you can't have friends over for movie nights or video game nights? I'm 35 and still love to do those things. How is your treatment going?

      All of my friends went away for college so I haven't had any friends over since August. And my treatment is going well I'm on my 4th treatment and have my first pet scan tomorrow

      So glad to hear your treatments are going well. Do you have to stay inside because of immunity issues? If so, have your Dr's given you neulasta or neupogen to increase your white blood cell counts? Not sure how that works with HL. Also, when will you get the results of the PET Scan?
