Hi there. Not a question, but my aunt is in the exact same boat as you. She also didn't get vaccinated (due to a bunch of family reasons at the time) and she got polio. It basically changed the course of her life. She can barely walk, she has trouble finding a job, all her money goes into pain management, etc etc.
I'm so glad that you're doing this AMA and will probably be showing my aunt this

Hi! What an inspiring story.
My aunt was unfortunate enough to contract polio in Canada when she was younger. It honestly changed the trajectory of her life and she’s still dealing with the after effects now as 64 year old.
Do you often speak with other survivors?
