#60 Meet Volker – 90 Real People Real Lives. #FASD

MEET VOLKER – I am a 59 years old piano teacher from Germany. I got my diagnosis at the age of 57. Every day successfully I am battling my way back into a quite normal life by doing lots of sport (jogging, workout), training my brain (piano playing, foreign languages), a special diet, Victorian discipline, that I am lucky to have a loving wife, who supports me! Even with FASD a quite normal life is possible, but that you have to fight for it with all your energy, which as a result makes you esteem life as such very high. Just as Andrew Peterson does, whom I admire.

STRUGGLES – I started drinking very young, at the age of 16 I was addicted, stopped drinking at 25. Have had some psychological problems, anxiety, depression, who wouldn’t?

STRENGTHS – I speak German and Dutch fluently, have learned English and French and a bit Russian at school. I have studied music on a conservatory. And I am going to do much more in order to make people aware of FASD and help others.

MY WISH – As this is an international problem for all people of all languages and all races I am trying to help create an international network.

I believe classical music can help to make people attend on FASD. Samples of my work


There is a autobiographical video on YouTube and more videos about FASD.


My wish for the future would be to exterminate FASD.

En tanke om “#60 Meet Volker – 90 Real People Real Lives. #FASD

  1. RobertMof says:

    Doctor Who is now considered a British Institute and has come a long way since it first aired on November 23rd 1963. The very first show saw the Doctor travel 100,00 years into the past to help some dim cavemen discover light. After 26 seasons and seven Doctors later the series came off our screens in 1989 much to the disappointment of the huge devoted fanbase. In 1996 an attempt was made to revive Doctor Who but it wasnt until June 2005 when it came back with a vengeance with Christopher Eccleston as the ninth Doctor that put the series back on the map as it were. It then went on for 5 years with David Tenant portraying the Doctor until 2010 when Matt Smith took over the role. Today it is still a great family show and has attracted many new fans.
