Holger’s story starts at five

I have been sick for many years. I have a virus in my blood that causes hepatitis C. It happened back in 1961, when I was five. I got hit by a car and spent many months in the hospital. I had to have many operations as the surgeons tried to put everything back where it belonged.

My body could not move, but my brain was very much alive, eager to know new things. I noticed that my arms were more and more difficult to raise. That is when I realized I had to prepare for any sort of future I could hope for, one in which I could at least use my brain to support myself and earn a living.

And then I found WordPress.
