Aww I know what you mean. PKU can be a pain at times and I’ve done my share of sneaking foods I shouldn’t when I was younger and let me tell you it is alot better idea to eat only what you should. When I don’t eat what I should I get horrible headaches.
It does suck when your out with your friends and can’t eat what they’re eatting. Last time I went out with a few friends they wanted to get dippin dot ice cream and my one friend forgot about my pku and I wasn’t too happy, but for the most part my friends try to make sure that there is something for me if we eat, the same with their parents.
