Welcome to my blog on living with post polio syndrome

The reason why I believe that people need to know not just about polio but about people who survived the polio virus. Who else can tell you the stories of people what they went through because for some reason they didn´t have had the opportunity to receive a vaccination? Who else can tell you much better on the late effects of polio if not those who are facing PPS and are being confronted later in their lives between 30 and 60 years with it? 

My name ist Viney and I welcome you to my life as a polio survivor. I created this blog to raise the voice and direct the attention to, what it feels to me, the forgotten people. I am collecting stories about people living with post polio syndrome.

So if you have a story to tell, please do not hesitate and contact me to publish it here on my blog!

with love and sunshine
