hi everybody, hope you're all as well as can be
I've just popped in to offload, so apologies in advance for whinging. On top of being recently diagnosed, nothing (and I mean nothing) seems to be going my way. But the proverbial straw has broken this camel today.
I've returned to work in the last 3 weeks only to have my driving licence revoked with effect from today. When completing the dvla health questionnaire last month I honestly, and in retrospect very naively, mentioned that I was on amitriptyline, once a day and it made me feel drowsy. But despite the fact I was only taking 10 mg at night, and stopped taking it about 3 weeks ago, the dvla have seen fit to revoke my licence.
Like many I rely on my car for work and now have to go through an appeal process before I can legally drive!!!
My doctor has refused to send a letter of support to the dvla (as this is apparently not procedure) and instead told me to reapply..... this could take weeks. Going to get on to the dvla first thing tomorrow to plead my case but have that certain dread that I am now caught up in a system that will take forever to battle to achieve a positive outcome.
I feel like I am being penalised for doing the right thing, I constantly feel that I go out of my way to 'do the right thing', get on best I can and never expect anything. Honesty, on this occasion, was not the best policy...... whinge over, thankyou for reading xxxx
