I THINK I WOULD HAVE BEEN A TYPE "A" PERSONALITY IF I HAD NOT GOTTON POLIO. I DID EVERYTHING EVERYBODY ELSE DID. I HAVE 2 SONS AND 4 GRANDCHILDREN. I WORKED FOR THE POST OFFICE AS A LETTER CARRIER UNTIL I WAS KNOCKED OVER AT WORK. MY ARMS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN MY BIGGEST STRENGHT BUT WHEN I WAS KNOCKED OVER IT HURT MY ARMS, SHOULDERS TO THE POINT THAT HAVE A HARD TIME USING THEM TO LIFT MY LEGS. I WENT FROM 90 MILES AN HOUR TO 5.I AM RETIRED NOW AND TRYING TO KEEP MY BRAIN BUSY.

Pamela,
Welcome to our community! I'd love to help you get a picture up. Do you have a digital picture of yourself? If so, when you log in to the community page you will see a box on the right side the screen that has your name in it. Under your name is "Sign Out," "Alerts," "Friends," and "Settings." Click on settings and it will take you to the settings page. The first option on that page is to upload a photo. Click the "choose file" button and select a photo of yourself.
Michael
