In honor of Dystonia Awareness month, Patient Worthy will be publishing a number of articles by Pam Sloate aka Dystonia muse. She is an avid blogger and advocate living with Dystonia. You may have already read two Patient Worthy articles about her, “She Spoke Into Her Answering Machine, What Played Shook Her” and “This Woman Lost Her Father, See Why The World Mourns” but now you’ll get a chance to read some pieces just as she authored them. Take a look at her bio below!
