Simce my stroke, the thing I like to do most is driving. I feel so free. I feel I can move faster without restriction. It makes me feel liberated somehow. One of the first thing I did when I came out of the hospital was to retake my driver's permit. Let me tell you it was cause for celebration to be able to drive again. I hated waiting for somebody to drive me where I needed to go. Even the service we have for the handicapped drove me nuts. First you had to call the night before to book a ride. I am a person who is very compulsive. I can decide one evening to just get out of the house and go for coffee and conversation somewhere, so with para transpo I couldn't do that. You can imagine how free I felt when I could just jump (ha ha) in the car and go. I could not survive without my car. I cam be a week without going anywhere but just to know my car is there and ready if I decide I want to go out gives me a sense of freedom.

Marie,

 

That's super to have that freedom of getting out and on your own terms. Good for you.

With today's technology, everybody should be able to have the same freedom.
