I am 56 years old and was diagnosed with CMT when I was 10. I always have had some limitations like climbing stairs and frequent falls. But it has gotten worse over the years. Now if I fall I can't get myself up. I have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. After I get out of bed I'm in pain. I can't even tie my shoes my wife has to do that for me. For my work I try to avoid social events like going out for lunch or dinner. I know I'll have to confront many physical obstacles if I go to social events like walking on uneven sidewalks, stepping up curbs, or climbing stairs. It can even be nearly impossible for me to get up from a seated position in a resturaunt. This all leads to embarrassing situations. Any sort of public travel is out for me. All of this is becoming very scary. I love my work but fear that my lack of mobility may continue to get worse. I don't know what to do. I could use some advice.
