I am 30 now, was diagnosed young at 13 with Charcot Marie Tooth, but it wasn’t confirmed until last year when I was able to get a DNA test and found out that I have type 1A. Knowing that I have type 1A is such good news for me. I now know exactly what I am dealing with and that it’s the most common variety where the research is focusing first. But this article is more about my career, because I’m not one to focus on the negatives, I’m all about making the best of them. Almost every negative has a positive side to it, so this is about mine.
