Am not a member of one. Do have material I have ordered and Dr. Bruno's book, The Polio Paradox. Am looking for groups or individuals in Atlanta area.
Please describe how polio has changed your life.
I led an active life, in spite of a lot of pain, therapy, etc. Worked full time in a demanding, stressful job. No official diagnosis made until 1990. "It" was called connective tissue disease, then fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease, etc. Now, at 77, weakness, pain, fatigue, etc., seem to be taking over.
