Please describe how polio has changed your life.
I don't know how to answer this, as I had polio as a child--I don't know an alternative. PPS, on the other hand, has dramatically changed what I thought my life would be & limited how I live my life today..chronic pain, physical limitations, etc. I "think" younger than my body acts.
How did you find out about PolioToday.org?

Welcome to Polio Today - I had to go back to two AFO's about 10 years ago.  I made a bad decision to discontinue them when I was 16 to look "normal" to my peers.   As if every one limped, stumbled, due to "floppy feet" - got away with it for am few decades with much needless physical pain.  They are back and the pain is negligible.
