Hold the wheel and drive 2


I’ve been thinking about whether or not I should get my permit again. Actually, I’ve been thinking about getting my license. But I’m not sure if it’d be a good idea.

I got dizzy when I drove a few years ago. Since I was diagnosed with vertigo and it’s pal “nystagmus”, I figured that might mean driving was completely out of the question for me. What if it isn’t?

If I decide to do it, I’ll have to relearn the manual, brush up on certain things, and I’ll have to get some glasses first. (I’m not allowed to drive without them.) But I just don’t know. It might be a bad idea overall.

    I also don’t have my Driver’s License…and people think I’m so weird because of this. I honestly have my reasons for not having one – but people still think I’m weird. As for rather you should go through the process once again, it really depends on the comfort level that you have. If you know what triggers your vertigo and nystagmus, then having someone with you while you drive might be a good idea. Whatever you decide to do, best of luck! 🙂

      It is something that a lot of people just expect you to automatically have. I think having someone with me might be a good idea, especially when I first start. Not just for the physical reasons, but for anxiety ones as well.
