Polio


I had polio when I was six weeks shy of age 8.  Because I had a damaged immune system, I contracted it from the vaccine.   I had to fight hard to learn to walk again.  I’m bringing this up because I would like to share with you a book I found about another woman who had polio as a child.  Ironically, we’re both named Janice.  Twin Voices by Janice Flood Nichols is a fine account and shares some similarities with my own.  While I blog about my difficulties  from time to time, I don’t have the kind of courage that she does to write a book about it.

I also want to share a link to Children’s Hospital’s site where they have some excellent information about the disease. I am very pro-vaccination.
