There is life after long term HCV infection
« on: March 11, 2018, 06:39:12 am »
The most important thing about being free from the curse of the dragon for me has been the freedom and peace of mind that has given me an new sense of self worth and the motivation to finally do things I have always wanted to do.

One was to learn how to code for the web. The other was to start performing and record the music I love with the wonderful guitar my brother built for me in 2006.

So far so good. This is the site I just built for his new business building and repairing fretted instruments.

I did the audio recording and coded the entire site for him. It is still a bit of a work in progress, but then again so am I... touch wood!!! After all I am just a guitarist at heart.

I am certain that a great many of us can finally start to achieve much more in life without the hell that HCV has wrought upon us all. By playing music and creating to the best of my ability at least I can finally start to give something back to all those who helped me through this hell for all those years.
