Introduction Diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) when I was 4 1/2 years old, I have been in a motorized wheelchair since age 10. Now 31, I have been ventilator-dependent for seven years. Despite my disease, I have strived to live as normally as possible. I was mainstreamed in public schools, graduated college with a journalism degree and am currently pursuing a master's degree in urban studies. Winheld's World chronicles my daily experiences in living with DMD and with a disability in general. I also use this blog to promote my autobiography, Worth the Ride: My Journey with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (iUniverse, 2009).
