Great news everyone! I know you all have been waiting with bated breath to find out about my driving privileges.
After my last seizure, my driver’s license was suspended as it should have been. So, every year they check in with my doctor to see how I’m doing. Not a ‘Has she made any new friends?’ kind of doing, but an ‘is she taking her meds regularly?’ kind of doing.
A bit of a pain, but it’s a necessary process to make sure I’m safe to be behind the wheel. The government agency responsible for making such decisions – specifically Henry – gets to ultimately make the decision and determine if I need to take any tests, written or driven, to prove myself worthy.
Henry decided that I’m good to go. I’ve not had a seizure since September of 2013, my driving record is nearly perfect, and my doctor gave me the clear.
My neighbors, friends and specifically my husband are thrilled. I’m pretty thrilled too since my kids are in two different schools and both have after school activities. The public transportation system is, however, shedding tears over the minor loss of income.
Hey! Maybe I could become a part-time, stay-at-home race car driver!
CLARIFICATION: I’ve been driving for a year since my suspension. This was an annual evaluation/verification by the DMV to ensure I’m still safe to be on the road. I’m sorry I didn’t make that clear.
