As much as I love people who have chronic illnesses like me and can understand their need to continue doing as much as they can as long as they can, there does come a time when you have to call it quits. I am stubborn and don’t like to give in so I can sympathize with people who don’t want to use a can or a walker. I understand when someone wants to do their own housework even if they pay for it after. Yes I get it… up until the point where you are going to hurt other people with your decisions and actions.
If you are too sick to drive, please talk to your doctor about it. Talk to your family and really consider the consequences of your actions. Just because you have a driver’s license and auto insurance doesn’t mean it’s OK to put your and other people’s lives in danger.
I’ve seen people with vision problems, with arthritis so bad they can’t turn their neck, with MS so bad they are unable to move quickly enough still driving. Think of what may happen and act on it.
