I'm the same Ruth,I do not miss driving because I never did drive. When we move, we always move to a home close by a bus stop.
Peer pressure is more than a parent worrying about when their child(ren) first learns to drive.Thank you for the cheers.
I do not feel that any pressure was put on me. In fact, because of my seizures, I think they felt safer with me not having a driver's license.
I never did care what society thought about my driving. They are not going to do my driving for me!!
Peer pressure is something that I avoid. Everyone else should avoid peer pressure. It is a trap to make you do something that is wrong or you do not want to do.
Hi Toxic-virus, the law in the US is that it is illegal for a person with epilepsy to drive. A person can if they have been seizure-free for a good many years.Here's one for you as a Brit I'm unaware of the driving situation in the us but, I know it's. Film but in "My sisters keeper" version 2009.lawyer Campbell Alexander played by Alex Baldwin has a epileptic dog detector called judge.
Campbell alexander has a full blown tonic clonic in the halls, shortly afterwards he is seen driving a bloody nice car complete with the dog to give Anna the much needed document.
Maybe I should move stateside.
Sorry if I spoilt the film. ;-)
How do you lie to the DMV? Don't you need permission from the doctor to get a license?Hi Azusa,
I am glad to meet you. Sorry that I missed your introduction in the Foyer Room.
This forum was made by Bernard out of love for his wife Stacy. Stacy has epilepsy. That love permeates throughout the whole forum.
I live in CA as well. I wish the laws were more strict.
My sister has epilepsy, as well. She lied to the DMV and was in several car accidents during her lifetime. She can no longer drive because of other health problems.
A lot of people with epilepsy lie to the DMV to get there driver's license. Other illnesses that the DMV has strict driving laws on, people lie about it. There have been several accidents by people with illnesses other than epilepsy.
I am glad that I decided never to drive.
