Losing My Independence

It’s one thing to stop driving on my own, because of this disease. It’s quite another to have my doctor take my choice away from me.

My doctor will be reporting my drop attacks to the DMV and I will no longer have a choice. Granted it’s been months since I have driven, but I hate not having the option.

What if I go into remission again? Will I be able to get it back? I have so many feelings about this. Some good and some bad.

This disease is so unpredictable that I have barely drove my car since I came out of remission in December of 2017. I can go on one tank of gas for months. I don’t know if my car will even start after a couple of months of not being driven.

I guess I can’t blame her… It just sucks!

Love, Peace and Light! Rita

  1. I have looked at my car under the carport for a year in November. I have driven a couple of times to town which is 10 miles round trip but when I get back home I’m in complete meltdown mode. So I have made the decision to sell my car it was and is an emotional feeling to have a part of your independence taken away. So I know how you feel! I have Meniere’s in my left and BPPV in my right. I have autoimmune disease. I struggle with seizures as well. I just found out my L4 L5. The disc is protruding and the 3 procedures did not help so I’m looking at surgery in the very near future. My name is Sharri, I will follow your crazy life going into 2020😊

    1. I am sorry to hear that Sharri. It’s a tough decision. I’d already made the decision for myself, but was in shock that the doctor wanted to take it away. Hugs and thank you for following.
