Marcin Duś

I’m Marcin. I’m 37 years old and I’ve been struggling with Crohn’s disease ever since I was 13. I’ve been receiving parenteral nutrition since 2010. When I first heard that I’m going to need lifelong PN support, I was devastated. I thought my life had ended – I won’t be able to work, go on a vacation with my family or even go out shopping. And even as I thought it couldn’t get any worse, I was constantly being faced with health, work and personal problems. After the initial crisis, I have come to accept the current state of being. I was slowly re-learning how to live. Now, after 7 years of my journey with TPN, I feel like a different person. What I’ve been through has made me a lot stronger. I look at the world differently and I can enjoy every little success. Thanks to the changes in my lifestyle, I can travel and spend time with my daughter again – even if it’s a bit more difficult. Moreover, now I can truly value all the people who have stood by me and encouraged me in spite of the hardships.
