This month is CMT Awareness Month I’ve been participating in a CMT Awareness Challenge. I have and will be sharing videos via my Instagram stories and answering questions all month long about living life with CMT.⠀

What is CMT? It’s short for Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease and it affects the peripheral nerves down your arms and legs. As I age it ages with me so the challenges of living with a physical disability are very different from when I was in my 20’s than now in my 40’s. Because of it I also suffer from fatigue, weakness, poor balance, restless sleep, challenges walking/going up stairs, and intervals of lack of energy. ⠀

I define myself as a vintage blogger but I do live with CMT and my leg braces are noticeable in my fashion outfit posts. They are a big part of my day and being able to share this part of myself with you is very humbling. It took me a while to get to a comfortable place where I can share more about this part of myself but doing this challenge and sharing here on my blog has felt like a safe space to share. 
All my videos will be saved in a highlights section called CMT Awareness Challenge. I hope you can join me as I try and spread more awareness about CMT and maybe learn more about me as well.
