A 25 year old man is living in hell on earth being stuck in a 12 year olds body. These are very rare cases to come across but not uncommon. Tomasz Nadolski, from Olesnica, Poland, suffers from a rare genetic condition known as Fabry disease, which affects his kidneys, heart and skin.
He said: “I am 25 years old and I would like to look like a man of my age. I hate this boy who I see every day in the mirror, because it is not me.”
At an early age Tomasz Nadolski began experiencing severe pain in his stomach, , hands and feet and was vomiting after every meal.
He recalled how his cruel classmates would say: “Skeletor, you’ve left Auschwitz!”
At first the doctors suggested that he was suffering with a mental illness rather than a physical one, so they sent him off and told him to eat more.
Tomasz said: “My parents were torn. They saw something going on, but they believed the doctors that I was mentally ill and that I should just eat more.”
This naturally effected his relationship with his family by his condition and how they could not get over his child like appearance.
He said: “When I’m at home, I’m just sitting in my room and spending my time alone. I feel lonely and I lack the support of my family and this is how it has been for many years. The disease has destroyed our family relationships.”
He said: “I often suffer sad situations. When I show the ID card in the office or if the police stop me, they accuse me of having a fake one.”
Tomasz cannot not eat at all and is constantly hooked up to a drip for 20 hours of the day, to ensure he gets the needed nutrients to survive.
Tomasz has to to get shoes specially made for the deformity of his feet from his condition.
Tomasz added: “I feel pain in my joints, bones, muscles. Every inch of my body hurts me. I am not able to sleep and live normally.”
Marcin Godek, an orthopaedic technician, said: “Every step with bare feet gives him great pain. We try to relieve his feet as much as possible.”
And while Tomasz lives on benefits which are equivalent to £160 ($204) a month, the treatment for the disease costs £170,000 ($216,000) per year.
Thankfuly the company that provides the drug has said they will cover his medical bill for free.
