This was a landmark return from disability

@mrfrederickson Good for you, this is what we are all searching for a sense of happiness in our lives, something that made me happy today was finding someone with Hemonopia who has returned to driving. I think you have hemonopia too? And would love to drive again one day? His name is Jeremy Johnston and his story was in the Northern Ireland stroke association newsletter, Google his name and Hemonopia, sorry bit rubbish at links, let me know if you can’t find it. He applied through the exceptional circumstances route and passed! 4 years after stroke. I feel one step closer!
Try this hopefully it works

Thankyou @emeraldeyes I’m not very good at doing posts but will give it a go, I was so happy when I found this have been searching for a while just to find hope. Everyone told me I do qualify for exceptional circumstances, but I said where are these people that have returned to driving? I’m happy there is some one that’s achieved it x

That’s great Steve I am so glad your stroke didn’t affect your eyesight, 80% of stroke survivors have had some form of visual impairment.
In my case peripheral vision on the left side. And my paralysis of my left arm.

The eyesight is improving better than the arm

Thank you i still have a few problems but as a hole i feel very lucky to have got away with it as well as I have. I have a loving wife who has stood by me through a lot as well as the stroke I also have chrones disease which can be difficult. Without my wife and little border terrier Rrnie i don’t know where I would be

Yes Steve these thing are the marrow fat in our lives
It certainly shows who does and doesn’t care, thank go for them.

I have never been truly religious but have bought and started reading the bible, and it has given me untold peace.

You take care keep on doing the do.

We are the ones who live.
