The bell rang. I started walking towards my locker. Then suddenly my legs buckled, I collapsed. I sat on the floor while my classmates collected my books. "Are you all right?" my friend Karen asked. "I am fine." I insisted "really." I went home as I do every day for lunch. Two days earlier I had sore throught and headache, now I feel weak and my back hurts. What horrible timing to get sick, on homecoming day. When I got home my muscles started jerking so my mom sent me to bed. The next morning the doctor told me my diagnose. I had polio.
