I have recently had all my benefits reviewed and I am in receipt of hight rate mobility.
I have had an assessment and hand controls have been recommended which I have no issue with but I find using and getting in and out of a car very difficult especially when my spasticity is at it’s worst. I have two young children that I have to negotiate in and out of the car and it hurts to bend over and do their belts etc. I passed my test last August and have found driving a complete nightmare and a total pain to be honest. I am not sure if the accident I had has helped but I panic and find I fatigue just as quickly as I do using public transport with a tri walker. I have no car at the moment as I am making my mind up.
I thought maybe a mobility scooter may be a better idea as I don’t go far because of being alive enough for when the kids are home. I could use it for the school run but what happens when it rains.
I really don’t know where to turn so I was hoping that some of you may be able to give me some advice as we all understand each others struggles.
Best wishes x
