So... I am recently (a couple of months ago) diagnosed with TLE that eventually becomes a tonic-clonic seizure with loss of consciousness. Recovery afterwards takes a couple of hours (!).
In any event, it does mean that I can no longer drive which presents a problem... I, for the moment, live in Pretoria and work in Johannesburg. My question that I would appreciate your input on is this (twofold) (especially the input of @EpilepsySA):
1) Getting to Park station is easy enough via the Gautrain; however, getting to the office near the SABC in Auckland Park is more of a challenge. I've had a look at services like Uber, Bolt etc. and while they work fine, they do become quite pricey quite quickly. How do you commute between home and work? Is there a rideshare service somewhere? I don't mind taking public transport at all, HOWEVER, I travel with a fair bit of technology (read laptop) that I worry might be taken from me waiting for the bus in areas that are not considered safe.
2) More generally, what are our options for getting around town independently? For that matter, getting around anywhere that one would like to go.
Thank you, guys. I'm keenly awaiting your thoughts on the matter. Much appreciated.
Keep well, R.
