Wow how do I start, well to be honest I've hated most my life with PKU I've had it since I was 10 days old andI have classic PKU. Ever since I was little I was teased or treated diffrent cause of it. I've even had people at day cares when I was little take away my home luches cause they didnt belive PKU was real. School was always missrabal kids poking fun telling other kids that if you were to touch me they would get it. So I decieded that was enough and told people that I was cured, and I went off my diet for 2 years. Once my parents found out i was sent to the hospital for 2 months so I could get back on my diet and see how serious this was. Around 6th grade I went back in for not drinking my formula I still have trouble to this day drinking it but I'm getting better. By the time I was in 8th grade I started making friends even though I was beyond shy. People became intrested in it but I still felt like I was from another planet. When high school finaly came around I relized PKU is something I'm going to have to deal with and if people have a problem with it then there not worth the time. I now have no problem telling people that I have PKU. I find it funny to watch peoples expressions on there face is priceless! I have friends that have knowed me for years that still make me food I cant eat but I'm so use to it. Every one in my life helps me. But why I write this is cause I've never met another pku person in my life for a while I thought I was the only one... and then when i was 14 I was told that people go threw what I do and that amazed me! Also I would love to talk to People with PKU and just hear what you have to deal with. so please feel free to email me!
