For a long time after my son’s first achoo, I was always confused as to whether the culprit was a cold or an allergy. Many symptoms between the two (like are the same runny nose, itchy eyes and a cough). Now, I’m prepared to know the difference.
Whether it happens at two months or two years, it can be a really weird time. Maybe you feel relieved. Maybe you feel guilty. Maybe you even feel a distinct loss of identity. Maybe it’s a mix of all three, plus some other conflicting emotions I forgot to mention.
