heyy my name is victoria.... i have pku and have always struggled with it. i always felt like an outsider and that no one understands what it is and what i go through. many people dont even really believe that i have it because they cannot grab the concept that it is mental and physical and also can take some time before anything would happen. i have not been on my diet for awhile. i can't find the determination to stay on when i always feel like an outcast i live with my boyfriend and his family. everytime we have a dinner everyone has to ask me questions if i cant have something. i just wonder if anyone else has ever felt this way? when i was in elementary school the kids in my class would take my special lunch and eat it and make me eat theres and if i couldnt have it i wouldnt eat. i have always been bullied with this and i guess it has followed me all through life and has made me very insecure. my own boyfriend and friends dont understand it, they have asked me if maybe my parents have made it up and it is just very hard to deal with. if anyone has any advice please send it my way .
