Hey Microphone!
I will admit that in the past I didn’t have the best outlook on PKU. I don’t know if that is just because I didn’t or if it had anything to do with the fact that I had levels around 12-14mg/dl so I was pretty negative at about everything but I’m doing great now!
My whole Child Development class at school knows about my PKU and all of my friends. My teacher found out I have PKU so when we started talking about genetic disorders children can be born with she asked if I want to help explain PKU and I said yes…something that about a year ago I would have never done! But anyway I have go head out, I’ve got a dance competition tomorrow and get to call a friend to find out what time it’s at. nBreanna
