Why should having a neuromuscular disease exclude you from exercise and all its benefits? Perhaps you’re not aware of what forms of exercise you can do, given your abilities. Maybe you have questions and doubts about the intimidating prospects of starting an exercise routine. Or perhaps you’re in the “What good will it do me?” frame of mind.

When my son was 3 years old, I held him in my arms. With amazement, he looked at me and said, "Mommy, you're carrying me!" I have Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and, because I used crutches, I had never walked while holding him. Now, we were standing in a swimming pool. After explaining to him how the water could support me, he suggested we fill our house with water so that I could always walk.
