Please describe how polio has changed your life.
Didn’t walk until I was 5 years old, had 13 major orthopedic surgeries up to age 18 on hips and feet. At age 18 I finally accomplished walking on cane. Later in my 30’s started falling, more pain, lost abilities I’d struggled to gain. Kept my positivity by being involved in real estate, community, and child’s school. After empty nest and losing ability to be involved in those type of things do to more pain and fatigue, found interest in photography and the arts, I’ve been working on this since 2014, now having trouble with my eyes, pain, and blurred vision which improves when I rest my eyes. Keeping the faith as much as possible in all.
How did you find out about
Did search to see if anyone else was experiencing eye and vision issues along with other difficulties.
