Yeah that has to be pretty nice having people around you have atleast some understanding about PKU. At school it takes forever for me to explain PKU to my friends and even after i tell them they say, “So you can have meat though right?” Right after I just told them i couldn’t, and it’s annoying sometimes. but some of them understand.
