I’m wondering if anyone has any tips on this.
Currently I’m still driving a normal, manual car. But I sometimes (on warm days, as I’m heat sensitive) feel that this may not be possible for too much longer. I have no problems with operating a clutch, although my left leg is the weakest when walking, it’s more the right leg that can cause me concern when driving if I’m too warm or fatigued from plodding around.
My neurologist advised me to get an automatic next time. But I don’t actually think that would help - it takes no burden from my right leg, which is the problem.
Has anyone had a similar situation and do you have a suggestion as to adaptations and their cost?
A frustration is that I don’t qualify for the mobility schemes at garages as I am just on the standard rate of PIP. Even though I rely 100% on my car, I can’t benefit from the schemes as I can manage to walk fifty metres at a time with my poles.
