Life with PKU

by

September 18, 2010 in Uncategorized

My life with pku has always been the same, no one ever teased me about it. When i was little it was easy because i always brought a bag lunch and so did a lot of kids. I always ate just veggies and fruits. But when i got older they started to question me about why i still do it but i don't care. I didn't have any problem when i was little but when i got older i wanted to be bigger and stronger. So i began working out in high school and even joined the football team. But because i was working so hard in football n i could only eat veggie and fruit i became more hungry and ate more. I mean what guy doesn't want to be strong? So i ate more and i did get bigger, i did get stronger. So i made sure i kept myself in shape and intelligent. Cause you can do both with pku.

    No when i started sports i just got more hungry and just ate more veggies and fruits. I mean we all have our ups and downs but i always try to get more ups. If i make a mistake i confess to it and try to make up for it. Because my parents talk to me so much when i was little like 4 or 5 i understood it and lived a normal health life. so your baby is 8 months old, i came to live with my new family when i was 4 cuz it (My PKU) wasn’t being followed. So your baby will be fine.
