My new project

November 7, 2010 in Uncategorized

Hey guys, I just wanted to tell you all about my new project that I am working on at university. I am currently in my second year but I am already thinking and planning what i want to do for my final exam. Insted of doing a dissertation, I am hoping to do a P.R.P. which is a practical resaerch project. I am hoping to write and direct my own performance, which will be about P.K.U. I want it to be factual, descriptive and to have a lot of actual real life events that have happend to me over the years. I am telling you all this as I want to do as much resarch as possible and I would love to hear your stories. Whether it is having a child with P.K.U. or having it yourself or, something I am really interested in; trying to start a family when you yourself have P.K.U. as this is something that really worries me and something I want to find out more. If you could please send me your stories i would really appreciate it. I also want to produce a performance that will tell people about P.K.U. and let people know that having children with P.K.U. can lead a normal life and try and make people more aware. Thankyou for reading and I hope to from you all soon. x

    Hi Lorry,
    My husband and I are preparing to start a family and I plan on keeping record (blog) about this experience so others can find it and maybe it will help them as I don’t know any personal accounts from people who have gone through the entire process. I would also be more than happy to share this with you! Let me know what you need!

    I was born before testing became law. I was diagnosed in kindergarten (age 4-5). i went off diet at 10. went back on in early 30s for 2-3 months (1989or 1990, i’m not sure. i’m not good with dates). i’ve been off diet since. now my life is a nightmare. please let me know what i can do to help. i always wanted to participate in some kind of study or research.
