Please describe how polio has changed your life.
It has forced me to slow down and be aware of the beauty that surrounds me and to value and seek the best in those who I encounter on a daily basis. The frustrating part is that I REALLY want to wear high heals!
No desire to climb Mt. Everest--just want the heals.

Welcome to Polio Today - I surmise the girls had a tougher time with shoes  than the boys.  The lightweight construction of girls' shoes were not as rugged as the shoes made for boys.  I expect many missed out on "that" right of passage into adulthood we guys did not have to face.  But we were denied the chance to be that "star athlete" that made a difference.  We all were denied certain aspects ... but we also found things overlooked by others.
