One step forward, Two steps back!



There is a moment when you deal with professionals where their opinions make you feel like you are massively wrong and feel bad for thinking the way that you do.

Shopping for a Disability


(Ad/Gifted)



I have spent the last 22 years finding ways to deal with a slow but degenerative condition. There are many different ways Muscular Dystrophy affects my day to day life and one aspect is my clothing.

The more certain areas of my body deteriorate, the more my clothing style has changed.

For a long time I was a simple t-shirt, jumper and jean guy in casual situations and a more casual-smart shirt, skinny jeans and a jacket when going out. However, over the years, I have had to sacrifice certain styles in my fashion to suit my body shape and how I move.

One would see this as a great excuse to go shopping but as a person who lives with a Dependant Personality Disorder making decisions, even small ones like choosing clothes, can make shopping a hellish activity.

Recently, I had to make that decision and adapt to both my clothing and my body but luckily Jacamo helped me.
