I got my permit today! I studied and I passed the test. I got my permit at 41 years old 🤣.
I am so excited, but I am also so aware. Like I know I can’t see well at night with my glasses even so I won’t drive at night. I also know I won’t be able to drive at certain times due to how I feel. I also know I can’t drive in busy areas and I have to take it slow and do what’s safest and best for me and everyone on the road.
But it’s a step to relearning how to drive and to do it safely. Excited for this next step. It’s been 3 years, 6 months and 17 days since I last drove, since the day I got my TBI.
Here is to baby steps and accomplishments along the way and to do what’s safest and best for me and others.
I went on my first drive and my husband gave me a 8/10. I do better in town which surprised me, Kings Grade and North Valley back roads we took are a little narrow and fast and I was surprised in town felt better.
The last day I drove was in our Dodge Ram we had at the time. The first day I drove with my permit was in our new Dodge Ram. I definitely think I drive better and definitely paid better attention now!
