Who I am

Life with PKU can be a challenge, nightmare, fun, depending on what you make of it. For me i have never felt once that i was different. people come up to me and it would take them like a month or 2 to recognize it. i just tell them i am a vegatarian. Basically i am. But PKU was never a problem for me mentally. i may have had trouble managing it sometimes but who hasn't at one point in life? But i make the best of my life and make things work sometimes. But i don't let it come inbetween my life. I always made sure i did good in school. Thanks to my loving parents i have had so much PKU food i feel like i have everything. With my milk, soup, noodles, and much more food i almost have all the same food as everyone else. It is always good to have people who care alot about you. Especially your parents, my parents go out of their way for me. I am so lucky to have them. I don't know what i would have done without them. That's what everyone even without PKU need when they're young or older, someone who loves them. I'm one of them who has a lot of them. Whether its a friend, brother, parent, uncle, spouse, who ever. These 15 years have been amazing with PKU. I wouldn't trade it for anything!

    AJ- I am glad to hear things have been great for you! I agree with you that support is key. I have had supportive family, friends, and colleagues. Keep up the good work with diet and continue to stay positive.

    You definitely have the right attitude, and it sounds like you’re doing great with your PKU :). Keep up the awesome work.
