"Susan Knittle-Hunter is thrilled to be Tuesday’s Facebook Friend of the Day." She is a retired special education teacher that lives in Grants Pass with her husband. She has three children and five grandchildren. Knittle-Hunter says she is very interested in local and world news. Even more, she spends a lot of time on Facebook interacting with her friends and family. But her time on the computer isn’t all about news. It is about research and writing. Knittle-Hunter has a very rare disease – Andersen-Tawil Syndrome, a form of Periodic Paralysis. Doctors have only diagnosed 100 people in the world with it. Knittle-Hunter has created a website about her disease and is writing a book. The site is designed to created a hands-on approach to understanding the disease, symptom management and getting proper diagnosis. She said she has been ill since she was a child and medical professionals misdiagnosed her for many years. “I was not diagnosed in a timely manner and am so ill now that all I can do is sit in a recliner,” Knittle-Hunter said. “I become paralyzed periodically due to potassium shifting in my muscles.” She shares her story on her website."
