I have to really agree with Braelynmom, I’m 15 now and I will admit even today there are some kids I’ve known since I was in 4th grade and they have not or have just found out I have PKU. I’m like any other kid out there, I get good grades, can participate in afterschool activities (although I stick mostly with dance because that eats up about 4 nights a week for me) and I’m basically as social as anyone else I know, maybe even more (I’m a talkative person) .
Braelynmon, that’s kind of cool that you went to someone who has PKU like your daughter, it would be nice if I knew someone else who had PKU lived very close to me, but oh well. nBreanna
