Feeling a little fed up
Have been feeling a little better in myself although numbness hasnt gone from my feet right up to chest… balance still bad and muscles still mostly stiff, but leg weakness has improved.
Problem is, because my leg weakness has improved and I can lift my foot high enough to work my car much better… Ive been driving. I cant feel the pedals too well but have been doing fine none the less…
…until today When I drove into a parking bay at tescos and instead of slowing to a stop in the parking spot i accelerated into the car parked infront because I couldnt tell my foot was on the accelerator and not the brake! So, needless to say I feel I shouldnt drive now! Just when i felt like i was getting back on track. Ive got so many plans over the next few weeks that mean i need to drive and i cant afford to get taxis everywhere, and I cant walk far enough to be able to get to the bus or train… and get the baby with me with everything i need for him.
What do i do…??
Im applying for DLA, but Im scared they wont give me high rate mobility and then Im just gonna be stuck indoors forever!
