    Oh No (I will explain): When I was diagnosed I worked as a transcriptionist in the same hospital where I had my x-ray. When my own report came I did something I should not have done: I listened to it. However, I did not transcribe it. Instead at the end of my shift I went home, curled up in a fetal position and sobbed. I was terrified! I had had a friend who had died with NHL and I wasn't prepared to die. My daughter was only 13! So I pulled myself together and got on with the business of living with cancer.

    I was diagnosed with NHL, Stage IV in May of 1996 and had six rounds of CHOP. I was in remission for about 18 months and had a recurrence in 1998. At that time I had an outpatient autologous stem cell transplant. I have been in total remission since that time. I am sure you will do just as well! If you need moral support, let me know...I was working full time in a hospital at the time (and part time for my oncologist!) so I had plenty of support. I wish the same for you. My name is Liz.
