Hello all Polio Survivors everywhere. I hope and pray that you, and I, stay safe and well while we live through this latest Pandemic, and remember, we survived the Polio Pandemic, so we will certainly survive this one. https://www.poliowarriors.org

When ordering something off of Amazon, go to Amazon Smile and designate Polio Health International as the charity to donate to. It will cost you nothing and it will help keep this most valuable organization to continue to function to help all polio survivors.
My name is Don H. I was born on Dec 6 1951. I was born with a hair lip clef pallet scoliosis spinalbifid . Then about 2_half come down with polio. I have Harrington rods in my back 30 plus yrs. Also a ruptured disk. About 3 yrs ago I was told I have a split spinal cord on the bottom. The Drs do not know hare far up it goes due to the rods I live with a lot of pain all the time. Even with the pain meds. I use a cane and a Up Walker to get around when I leave the house. Hard to walk any distance any more. I was wondering if there is any one who would be interested in starting a dialog from that era. Thank you Don H..
My name is Don H. I was born on Dec 6 1951. Was born with a hair lip clef palette. Scoliosis, Spinal Bifida. At about 2 half. come down with polio. Do not know much about what happened early on. Now I have Harrington Rods in my back. 30plus yrs. A ruptured Disk about the same time in area that was not fused. About 3yrs ago I found out that I have a split spinal cord on the bottom. The Drs do not know how far up it goes due to the rods. Big shock. Never ending pain even with the Meds I take. Is their some one out there. With similar conditions that I could set up a dialog with???. Thank You Don H PS. Every thing that I have listed is well documented. I also us a cane and a Up Walker to get around with. Hard to walk any more.
My dad is going to be 77 in December and is a Polio survivor. He lost a lot of muscle in his legs, back, and abdomen. He has post-polio syndrome now that is making daily tasks more of a struggle for him. He has a home aid that helps with cooking, cleaning, bathing, and dressing in the mornings. He has a hoyer lift to get him from his wheelchair to the toilet and bed. I take care of him in the evenings. Just wondering if anyone else out there knows of any equipment that makes life easier for them.
Anyone using a Sleep Number Bed? I bought one in hopes it would help with my post-polio body pain that it’s getting worse.

So, who's an idiot? Check out Post-Polio Syndrome. I wish I wasn't experiencing it, but it exists. I would wish you to have it so you'd understand, but I wouldn't wish on anyone what I went through starting at 6 years of age and continuing now at 74.
I have PPS and looking for a support group in Milwaukee...thanks
