I was born on the 24th of august in 1989. It happened in a hospital, in a small Polish town named Zabrze not far from Katowice. The time was around 1 am. the night was clear. It was a complicated birth and it took many painful hours for my mother and I to separate. I came far too early. two months earlier than expected. they tried to keep me inside but there was no chance. When I came into this world I choked horribly. I just couldn’t breathe. I turned blue and my heart stopped and I was dead for a moment. But the doctors were able to reanimate. I laid in an incubator for days. Being closely observed. The doctors said it was a miracle that I even could move my arms and legs and didn’t end up as a full body disabled person regarding the lack of oxygen my brain had experienced. My poor mother she was just twenty years old. Two weeks later they took me home.
