Getting Acquainted With Myself

About 40 years ago after my Mom had died I noticed my right hand muscles jumping. I called my Dad and asked him what disease Mom had and he couldn't remember but that it had two names. I looked in the phone book and found a number for Muscular Dystrophy so I called and talked to a Doctor and gave him my systems. He made an appointment for me and I went to a Hosp. in the Portland Oregon area and had some electrical testing done. After the end of the tests, the fellow giving the tests told me I had a form of Muscular Dystrophy which was called Charcot Marie Tooth Disease. They gave me some literature and I went home to get acquainted with myself. Since then I have a pair of leg braces and a zipper and button assisting products
