Please describe how polio has changed your life.
Polio made me a very shy timid child, as a young adult I had very low self esteem. People could be very cruel. Nowadays I have great self confidence and apart from the post polio have a very happy life as I began to realise that I was as valid as any able bodied person. I am lucky that I have no pain with my pp, only exhaustion which I cope with by pacing my activities.

Hi Patsy
We stayed away from the stores Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Today we went for specific items and came home. I did not want to become exhaused. I am tired though. I sat on my stool in the kitchen and made my husband his favorite pie.. Banana.
