We're into week 2 of dealing with this allergy and while at first I was pretty matter-of-fact about it I'm having like an emotional delayed reaction now. It feels like tears could pop out at any moment, and Kelsey hasn't even had a serious reaction. But just knowing that she could, and that it is going to be difficult to keep her from having a reaction is sometimes all I can think about. I'm trying, like someone else has said, not to worry too much about the future (birthday parties, rebellious teenage years) but it is hard! I look at her sweet little face and just wish she didn't have the stupid allergy. I've read there are stages that people go through when grieving or dealing with bad news and guess I'm going through the anger/sadness phase. Hopefully once I learn more about this I'll feel a little more in control. There is so much to learn! It helps to be able to "say" this to people who will understand.
