Everything is not completely okay. Experienced sudden weakness in the polio leg and was concerned. I have been working lots of overtime at work and I think fatigue was part of the problem. In addition, I realized I was spending too much time on-line and had to cut something to focus on my health. Having some issues with depression also. Fortunately, I have a doctor's appointment in a couple of weeks and can see if I can do something. Sorry for the abrupt end to my twitter account. I'm not sure about continuing with twitter. However, I will continue on this site. Thanks for asking. You're sweet.
Haven't seen my video yet. I never had anyone in my younger years to share polio experiences. As you know, so many of us did not want to talk about it because we wanted to leave all that behind and have a "normal" life. I didn't join a support group until about 9 years ago. Thank God for my group. I don't know what I would have done without them.
Hi, Shirley - thanks for the feedback on PNV's website. It was launched in 2006 after my Polio Advisory Committee put loads of time and effort into figuring out what they wanted from it. Hosting and maintenance is paid out of donations and I do my best to keep it up-to-date. There are so many great polio-related sites, like this one, and many who have developed a comprehensive library of electronic articles over many years. It makes it easier to just link to them rather than reinvent wheels. But it's certainly important to have some kind of organisational profile.
Alas, I am totally ignorant insofar as Twitter is concerned. I can't get my head around how it works any better than email or websites. I don't believe my mobile (cell) phone is "Twitterized". Am I a dinasaur?
