Please describe how polio has changed your life.
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.
