I am 18 years old, and i have PKU. The way i live my life is based on my diet. My diet is just fruits and veggies. I have just recently graduated from high school I graduated with Perfect attendance for 13 years never been late or tardy in my life. All my life my phe levels have been up and down. My Dietician who had my case never helped me. She would take my formula and give it to the other kids. So i wasn't getting the medical stuff i need. I just recently told her to leave me alone and i will take care of it on my own. Since i have turned 18 i have been majorly stressed. I cant get my formula anymore unless i can pay for it but i dont have a job or am i on social security. I have tried 8 times to get on social security including the help of my parents when i was little. While i was growing up i had a lot of problems ones that would scare most parents and in my case it did. I got in bad stuff after my granddad passed away i started cutting, staying out late, drinking and getting into trouble. Is this normal?? I have been thinking that maybe drinking my formula is making my blood levels go up and down. i have not been drinking it only when i feel extremely weak? What should i do?
