4 Days and Counting
We are now four days out until we get allergy testing again. I’m extremely excited and nervous because the last test results were very positive- 3 allergens went down. In fact, they decreased enough that if they dropped again, we may get to do some food trials.
It’s very difficult to explain how I feel about this upcoming testing. We’ve done it several times so the whole anxiety of a blood draw really isn’t playing into my emotions. I believe my perceived IMPORTANCE of the test is certainly playing into my emotions. I mean, we could seriously, get some food back! He may have more bread choices! Baking may become easier! I’m almost giddy thinking these thoughts.
On the other hand, I don’t want to get ahead of myself. I don’t want to be disappointed. If they haven’t dropped and we are still in the same place, I will be very, very disappointed. I also know that 2 of his allergies actually went up last time, so I’ll be even more anxious if those two continue to raise.
So, as you can see I’m torn. I’m trying to keep myself busy to distract me from the fact we are so close to life maybe getting easier. Anyone else get these mixed feelings? How have you coped?
