Should I write it?
No or Yes?
Raylee is a girl who is “special”. No she isn’t blind, no she isn’t mental. She has a food disability. I
know what you’re thinking. “Oh she is bulimic or anorexic.” No she has PKU, that stands for Phenylketonuria. Good luck pronouncing that. Life is hard at times but she tries to be
normal. Food is a constant battle. She can’t eat many things that most people can. Normal people look at her like ‘How is she still living if she can eat anything I’m suggesting?’ PKU is
a genetic disorder where the person can’t have certain foods with high protein levels. Normal people need tons of protein but it is just the opposite with her. “The lower the better!” he mom
reminds her what seems like every day. Some days she gets by without a single question. She is singled out many times as the girl who can’t eat food. It breaks her heart each time she
is separated from other normal people. In her case she doesn’t want to be popular. All she wants is to fit in with people unlike her.
I am trying to get this disorder some publicity. I want other people to understand it and learn about it. So should I write it?
