|Welcome to Philip's Quick Start Post Polio
Information Website. If you have an interest in The Late Affects of Poliomyelitis,
this website will be of interest to you.
I am Philip Childress. I had polio in 1949 at the age of 13. In 1993 I experienced respiratory failure while recovering from pneumonia. It was diagnosed as due to Late Effects of Poliomyelitis.
Shortly before going to the hospital, I had connected to an Internet provider. When I returned home, I started researching the subject of post polio syndrome on the Internet. I wanted to learn about the condition, but I had no idea of what I should be looking for, and I spent too much time bumbling around in the dark. That experience prompted me to create this guide, the one I would like to have had in 1993.
I present a concise way to quickly become acquainted with many of the online resources for Post Polio information. This is not a complete guide, nor is it authoritative. It's an opinion.
If you are a polio survivor and you have a concern about your future, you will find a short list of strategic actions that can help you survive in a Post Polio Syndrome world.
