I am PKU just like you. nMay i ask what your weight is?
I know that is something we (Anorexics don’t speak about)
I am very open about my PKU and Anorexia. nDo you Starve yourself or make yourself Vommit? nPlease let me know if i am over stepping my boundries.
At 1 time i was 180lbs,and now i weigh about 102lbs.
