Hi, I'm Tracy and I live on the Norfolk Cambridge border. I have been on HPN for around 10 years now. I am only able to have a cup of tea and a biscuit before I feel as full up as if I have had a three course meal! I feel very sick but thankfully my feeding is there to support my nutritional needs.
I have had numerous operations and now find myself with home parenteral feeding. When I needed support, I found PINNT to be a fantastic resource; it was amazing to find out that there were other people like me and that life was not over, merely continuing down a different pathway.
I have the support of my husband, daughter and grandchildren... being part of the group means I can give back some of the support I have received. They say it's better to give than receive - I believe a happy mix of both is a good balance for a successful support group.
