I've seen a lot of posts on driving lately so I thought I would share a tidbit of information. I have a disabled son who is currently in vocation rehabilitation. When I took him in to get evaluated for the program, I mentioned that I have MS. She told me that if I found I was no longer able to drive, they would PAY FOR hand controls on my car. So look them up!

They also train you on how to use them.

Still happening. 17 days and counting... Saw my GP today and he's doing more testing. My annual MRI is tomorrow so perhaps they'll learn something from that. Thanks for asking.

You are so sweet. So far the prescription is NOT working. Hopefully more time on it will work.

Can’t you insist on seeing a specialist so that you can get the right medication to stop it. Please take care, hugs Jimeka 🤗 🤗

Oh dear. I hope you are resting, and not at work. Sip on the water, don’t gulp it, that way you will keep hydrated and it won’t stimulate you to go, hopefully, will be praying for you, big hug, Jimeka 🙏 🤗

I had my annual MRI this morning, went home and started a load of laundry. Today I'm off work so have read some and watched a bit of TV. Time for a nap! Hopefully when I wake I can vacuum a bit.

I can tell you that getting hand controls for my car gave me back my freedom. It was amazing how quickly I adapted to them. I drive slower now, and that causes some frustration with folks driving behind me. I figure, they’ll get over it. P.S. I love my cruise control on the highway.

Thanks for the info. Wondering what organization or? installs those hand controls. Have never heard of this.

Google "Vocational Rehabilitation" to get the ball rolling. From there they should be able to recommend a company who can do it.
