Hi all you old rockers!
this year I will turn 42. I was diagosed, by chance, when I was 3 months old. I was basically taken off the diet at age 11, developed and anxiety disorder in my early-mid 20’s, suffer from depression and tend to be agorophobic. I figure I’d probably be a bit odd even if I didn’t have pku! I refuse to believe that everything that goes wrong in my life is either my parents’ fault or because I have pku, but then I am in denial!
I am trying to get back on diet and find it very hard. I would be lost and give up totally without sites like this.
