Has anyone elses confidence been knocked since being diagnosed or maybe since starting medication? Mine has, and its why Im resiting driving
⁸It is all up to your will power and mental capabilities. I just be thankful every day I awaken for another day, another chance. Thinking of my children, Humor helps a great deal as well. For each of us it may be different...
It is not an easy road to travel and so many see us as just people who look okay physically but obviously have no idea what we face each day.
One day I might get up early and be ready for the day, the next I may be in bed most all the day, for some every day is different and for others(like me) every moment can be different and like a roller coaster, never knowing what or when one of the many diseases we battle will strike again...
I do not barely ever drive, from my house to our office and pool, and hot tub is mostly it. But here in this 55+ community (and it is gated)the speed limit is 10 mph but typically I rarely drive much further than the grocery a block away or the pharmacy a block away.
Hang in there, tell yourself you can do this, come here and talk to the many people who are willing to listen and help. Where there is a will, there is a way.
Wishing you a well day and better tomorrow!

I seldomly drive, only if I feel ok and usually only a few blocks , in 8 months I think I put 400 miles on car and much of that I wasn't the driver.
thats why I've been redoing my driving - its the one thing that gets me out, and between that and my physical health I am stuck in way too much, one for driving bit to do next week and done, and I'm coming on in leaps and bounds
