Getting a check up by my doc in between my chemo session. Chemo every other week. Doc's visit on my off weeks.

Not the best picture, but more important than the picture is the message: Listen to your body and believe what's it's saying to you. MEN, PLEASE get regular check-ups whether you're sick or not. It's worth mentioning also that I was mis-diagnosed A YEAR before I got a proper diagnosis of Hodgkin's Lymphoma, which means I very may have had cancer for a whole year before getting diagnosed! I never accepted what the doc was telling me (everything is ok, you only have a minor lung infection which doesn't require treatment), yet my body was telling me otherwise. I listened, changed doctor's and now am getting the proper care that i need. Chemo is a bitch but it may very well be saving my life!
