I am not familiar with your type of seizures as I am only here on this board for the first time this morning A close friend of mine was able to get something from her dr stateing that it would be ok for her to get her drivers license and the state gave it to her.
I am so sorry and I would jump the pond to drive you around but I would probably be arrested for driving on the wrong side of the road.
You did not need this news but I know how strong you are and I will pray for the time to go by quickly and seizure free.
I know how it feels to have that bit of freedom stripped away and then comming so close to getting it back, however; Maybe this was a blessing in disguise.
What if your seizure happened a few days later while you were behind the wheel.
You're actually lucky that it happened the way it did.
How coincental is that!!! We both lost our D/L recently, we both work for the same company (Im in the UK so its under a different name though) and we are both sat counting the months until we can drive again! I hope you make it to 6 months.
Just a few crumbs of comfort, Darren, while you're waiting out the next year:
1. You get to feel smug about reducing your carbon footprint
2. You can get a disability railcard knocking a third off your fares. This means train travel in the UK is just ridiculously expensive, rather than absolutely ridiculously expensive
3. You can scrounge lifts from absolutely everyone without feeling guilty.
Sorry to hear your news about the driving license. Kate is thinking about applying for her own and wants driving lessons so I know how important it is to have your independence! She is champing at the bit and wanting to be behind the wheel yesterday! By the sound of your last post you now have a job with WALMART? Hope they are treating you well! All is ok here and Kate is still siezure free ( almost 2 years now) despite testing her medication with too many late nights and occasional excesses of alcohol! All the best Darren. Hope things work out with the driving. Gill J
Its great to hear from you again!!! I am glad that Kate is doing well and is now able to think about driving. I have tested my medications before in the same way (although not for a couple of years now mind you!) I have worked there for nearly 5 years now, although we dont call it Walmart here in the UK, its ASDA!
Great to hear from you again!
