Last month was Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) Disease Awareness Month. As the years have progressed so has my disability. Little by little I have discovered and figured out different ways to ensure that I live the best life possible as a disabled person. These tips are simple and easy to follow. They can be applied to anyone, not just disabled people. But I try to follow these daily and remind myself that despite my disability and challenges, I deserve a good quality of life like anyone else. I hope these tips help you start living your best life as well.

  1. Embrace your disability for what it is. Acceptance is key. 
  2. Use whatever walking aids or gadgets that can help you.
  3. Don't dwell on what you can no longer do.
  4. Ask for (and accept) help and support.
  5. Make your health a top priority.
  6. Find joy in the things you can do.
  7. Don't compare yourself to others (or to your past self). 
  8. Set realistic goals—and be patient.
  9. Remember that you have to right to have the best life possible.
  10. Find things to do that give you meaning and purpose.
