First of all I just want to say, life as a teen is rubbish, do you agree? Especially when that teen has Pku and sometimes says they wish they never had it. Hello im Chloe and im 14 yrs old and I have PKU. Sometimes I think im lucky to have PKU and others I regret I said that, but thats only when im anoyed about something stupid, thats just me being a teen, I sometimes break down in tears for the most stupidest things ever like, "I DONT WANT TO DIE!" or "I DONT WANT MY FAMLIY TO DIE!" thats what I used to say when i was about 11/12 now i always cry because i think im alone in the world because my friends leave me out and my mum gets in a big bad mood when shes tired and my dad lives in london and i like in a small little village called Goose eye (its in Bradford basiclly) so its miles away and we only met each other last summer i havn't seen him for ten years and sometimes he dosnt talk to me, so im going throught a bit of a hard time with pressure on my back, but its must be like any other teenager, we all have diffrent problems so i say to all you teens out there if you do have pressure behind your back, i just want to say relax and sweep it over your head like a brush, dont get all depressed about it because trust me its just making it worse. So being a teen is rubbish but if you think about it, its not so bad after all.
