Well turns out I didn’t have to tell my biology teacher. I got into biology today and the first thing Sam says is, “I told him!” He asked me a few questions and asked if any of my sibilings had PKU to and I told him my younger sister did and that my older brother is a carrier. We know my brother is because when I was born he was developmentally slow and they tested him for PKU just to be sure since he was like 17 months and just walking, but turns out he’s only a carrier. But anyway he thought it was interesting and cool and also said how he had no idea I had PKU. But because he has diabetes he understands that just because your on a special diet doesn’t mean you are any different from others, plus we talked a bit and he actually knows quite a bit about PKU.
Just thought I’d tell you how things turned out n~Breanna~
