I live in a area where most people drive. I can’t drive, not just from NLD, but from the anxiety it creates. I took driver’s ed as a teenager and failed my road test twice. The idea of expanding my spatial reality to the size of a vehicle is too overwhelming. The decision not to drive is thus a good one. NLD makes it harder to manage time, and not driving throws in an extra complication. Not driving helps me live very close to the earth, and I see new things on each walk. Still, I wish there was a surgery that could correct visual-spatial processing. I’ll return to this discussion.
