Title: Let's Sleep With Our Nightmares and Follow Our Dreams
[ Full Text Here ] Also reproduced in Issue No.8 - November 1997 of LINK-PIN.
Author(s): Sunny Roller, M.A.
Original Publication: Keynote speech given at the Atlanta Post-Polio Conference, "Been There, Done That, Movin' On" in Atlanta Georgia, September 12-14, 1997
Abstract/Extract: The title of our presentation today is "Let's Sleep With Our Nightmares and Follow Our Dreams." Living with polio for 40, 50, or 60 plus years has filled each of our lives with a generous supply of both nightmares and dreams. I believe that from time to time it is important for us to reflect on our very private nightmares and dreams, if we are to live an abundant and healthful life in the years ahead. As we take time consider this dual challenge today, thinking about following our dreams or being led by our hopes is one thing. We've been doing that successfully for years, but sleeping with an array of nightmares - now that is quite another thing! How could I suggest such a thing? Well, let's stop and contemplate. Maybe I shouldn't ask, but have you ever slept with a nightmare? Well, I'll tell you a secret, I've slept with a few horrible nightmares during the course of my adult life and I highly recommend it. It can be liberating, rejuvenating and VERY good for your mental health!

Title: A Look At Feet (for people with the late effects of polio)
[ Full Text Here ] Author(s): Beth Rose, B.A., B.Sc.(O.T.).
Abstract/Extract: Many people with the late effects of polio demonstrate foot problems. Some are mild problems, while some are more severe. Harley said that Polio may have affected some, but not all, of the muscles of the lower extremities. This partial paralysis can therefore create a muscular imbalance between opposing muscle groups of the foot and ankle, often leading to a Pes Planus (flat foot), Pes Cavus (high arched foot), abnormal pronation, abnormal supination, and gait abnormalities. Various other problems can then ensue, such as calluses, corns, Hammer toes, or Hallux Valgus... Proper fitting, supportive footwear and custom-made foot orthoses can alleviate many of the problems seen with the feet, such as calluses, corns, plantar fasciitis, metatarsal problems and bunions.

NOTES

It is the intention of the Lincolnshire Post-Polio Network to make all the information we collect available regardless of our views as to it's content. The inclusion of a document in this library should not therefore be in any way interpreted as an endorsement.

People who had polio and are experiencing new symptoms need to be assessed by medical professionals who are experienced in Post-Polio to determine what is wrong and to give correct advice. We can only make these documents available to you. YOU must then take what you believe to be relevant to the medical professional you are seeing. We are collecting and collating everything we can to enable medical professionals to make informed decisions. Other medical conditions must be looked for first, Post-Polio Syndrome is by diagnosis of exclusion.

"Source" in the context of this catalogue primarily means original author. In a few cases it will be an organisation or conference.
