A lot! My appearance has always been odd to other people and gotten looks or remarks. The paralysis has made things different. The PPS has made aging more problematic and a challenge to know what to do sometimes. My life would have been entirely different without polio in it.

Welcome, Gail...and thanks for starting a group for the NC crowd. Please take a look at the CA group I set up. My objective was for any polio survivor living in CA to quickly be able to locate the group closest to their home.
I took all the PPS groups that meet in CA, contacted each rep, secured permission to post their info and combined each one under a CA state grouping. You'll see each CA PPS group listed individually with their contact info and meeting data. One we get everyone logged onto poliotoday.org, we'll automatically be networked for getting information to members statewide. I am hoping in time to see EVERY state map represented covering survivors throughout the U.S.A. That is a lofty goal, but it only takes one person statewide doing the groundwork to help that become a reality.
I'd like to challenge countries in each nation throughout the world to do the same. Wouldn't it be amazing to see every survivor with computer contact world wide linked at the touch of the keyboard keys??? I'm intending to post part of this email under a discussion forum. We'll see how people respond!
