staystrong21 Posted May 14 Share Posted May 14 Hello everyone - I'm hoping this forum still attracts some responses! The threads I can see are all a few years old. I'm desperately seeking help and hope. I had an ischaemic stroke in July 2021 leaving with me homonymous hemianopia on the right side (my only deficit). I recovered some sight in the lower section, so the remaining deficit is about 40% (based on results from a Specsavers Esterman test) - not good enough for the DVLA, and they revoked my licence. I'm aware of the exceptional case criteria and I'm DETERMINED to regain my independence. I'm not really sure what I need here, perhaps just some encouragement and a confidence boost - I'm vaguely aware of what I need to do, although in all honestly I don't really know where to start and am feeling overwhelmed. I'm also terrified, and holding back for fear of failure. I know I only get one shot at this, and I really can't fail - so much hangs on it, I'm not sure how I'd cope if I'm refused. Hope is all that keeps me going. I know that I have adapted fully to the deficit, but it's also been so long since I've been behind the wheel I'm scared. Does anyone have any words of wisdom to set me off on the right path? Thank you so much for any input. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
