Hi Jaycee&CatCocoa,
I can agree with the side effects of being off diet as well as being on. nEven though i’m on diet i still suffer with major depression,mood swings,and aniexty that you would not believe.
I actually had a aniexty attack today,and i seriously thought my heart was going to jump out of my chest.I try to control it by telling husband its happening then breathing my way through it.Sometimes it works fast,and like today i thought it wasn’t going to end.
Hang in there i’m hoping it gets better since i just started Kuvan 4 days ago. nKeep your fingers crossed for me.
What do you guys do when something like that happens?
Talk to Ya’ll later, nTracie-PKU
