My wishes for you

Tips from our special friend Linda Crabtree…

CMT and Me

To all those with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease I wish you:

Patience to put up with what this crazy disease throws at us

Perseverance to keep going when the going gets really tough

Curiosity to keep looking for new ways to manage the losses you experience

A sense of humour so you don’t take yourself too seriously. Everyone has to cope with something.

The awareness to live in the present. Trying to project what CMT will do to you in the future is futile.

The ability to be happy that you are alive. Life can be good if you let it and the world can be beautiful, in spite of the daily news, if you stop worrying long enough to really look.

May 2015 be a year of self-discovery and love because in my books those are the two things that really matter.

  1. I made that post quite a few years ago. I am now 81 and still coping with CMT but more than anything, just happy to be alive. CMT has affected my life in many different ways but I think one of the most important is that it has made me more receptive to the feelings of others. I can only hope that I have a few years left yet. Not being able to walk isn’t the worst thing in the world. Not appreciating what you can do, is.
