Well we all know pku can be a challenge to some of us. I struggled with it myself as well but we can't get rid of it. It can be a battle for some of us but that's a battle you just can't give up in then. You can't think that you're different from everyone else because you aren't. There is nothing in the world that can stop you from doing what you want to do in life except you. If a person holds themself back from doing something and says its because of PKU, ADHD, or some other excuse then they don't really want it. There is nothing you can't do in life with PKU. If you want to be a football player, a president, a soldier, a cop, or anything and you do all you can to get there then you'll do it. It doesn't matter what happened to you in the past. A person could have had a terrible childhood with PKU. He would have went off his diet and suffered massive side effects like depression, brain damage, or etc. He might have hated his life and blamed it all on the pku. So he would either have two choices; he could hate what he is for the rest of his life and blame it all on his PKU, or he could accept the fact that he has pku and try his best to make the best of it to live his life to the fullest and he will do it then. It doesn't have to stop you! My goal is not to be average my goal is to be successful in life and so far i feel i've achieved that goal already. Its how you feel about yourself, you always want to do what makes you feel happy. If you want something bad enough you will fight for it. Its never too late to change your ways whether you're coming off a bad blood level, you're in your mid ages, you are just starting college or etc. You can make whatever you want come true with a little determination and self confidence.

    Amen brother!

    PKU is our reality. So we’ve got to make it good. PKU is difficult to live with, and sometimes it’s hard to explain to friends. But I’ve found that pretty much everyone I tell about it is fascinated! They’ve never met someone with PKU before. We are very unique!

    And you’re right, it shouldn’t stop you from anything. I can tell you that. I’m in my last year of college studying Public Health, I’ve been to China, Italy and Hawaii and I sing and I speak Spanish. PKU has not kept me from doing ANY of the things I want to do.

    Thank you for your encouraging post : )
