February 9, 2009
I was tired all the time, but blamed it on being the mother of three small children and working 2nd shift. I stopped playing with my kids outside or even going outside with them. I'd let them play while I dozed in and out. I also had asthma-like symptoms for over a year and was actually diagnosed with asthma...or should I say "misdiagnosed" with asthma. I had shortness of breath, wheezing, and coughing jags. I had pains in my neck, which I thought were kinks and suddenly one day when I started rubbing my neck on January 21, 2009 it felt like a huge bulge. That whole day I had a horrible feeling after that and finally called to make an appointment with my doctor.
I do the Light the Night walks for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society along with my friend Mikey who also had Hodgkin's at the same time as me, our friends and family. http://pages.lightthenight.org/wi/SEWI10/SJankowski
