Thread: Not being able to drive sucks:(

  1. #1

    Default Not being able to drive sucks:(

    It really sucks not being able to drive. Out of all th things I've missed out on being legally blind, not being able to come and go as I please and depending on others to drive me has to be the worst. I want to meet others in my local Abel community but can't because I'd have to get a ride and then they'd find out about my AB side.

    Good Evening!
    I understand where you are coming from regarding your lim ited options of getting out into the community.
    Most of my own face-to-face friends in the Autism disability community are unable to drive.
    But, I am one of the few who is able to drive.
    Where I live in New Hampshire has no public transit.
    Therefore, I have to drive and maintain a vehicle.
    Of course, besides Autism, I also have Cerebral Palsy, and my car is equipped with hand-controls, because my control over my legs is not good enough to safely work the pedals.

    It sounds like the only way around this is having someone you can confide in. If you did meet someone who also enjoys diapers, you wouldn't have to say that you were meeting them as AB/DL, but just meeting them as a friend. It might be more difficult finding someone who is AB/DL than getting a ride to their house.

    I was curious as to how you read and responded to these posts. Do you have a text recognition program that responds to vocal commands? Are you able to see some things, shapes, shadows? Do you live on your own and can you at least wear diapers at home without anyone else knowing? I just wondered how complicated it was for you to do the things that you want to do. Anyway, I wish you well in all of this.

    Well, I have about 3% vision in my right eye though I can't control its movement and my left eye is glass. I can read the computer/phone if my face is about an inch from the screen. I live with my parents. My mom knows about the diapers but we don't talk about it and dad doesn't know. I wear them under clothes almost daily.

    Thanks for the explanation. I'm glad your mom is accepting and that you can at least wear at home. I know the pull of wanting to wear diapers and at least for me, it can be very strong. Not being able to wear can be emotionally difficult when the desire is strong. Not being able to drive does suck.

    Not being able to drive can be a lot like being incontinent.

    I don't really like to drive, and look for excuses to walk or ride my bike places rather than drive, just as I like wearing diapers. But it would sure be a different story if I HAD to wear all the time, or COULDN'T drive when I needed to because of weather, cargo capacity, or whatever.

    Many of my friends in the local Autism Community do not drive.
    At least in the Boston, MA Metro Area there is the MBTA.
    gnd567, I myself am in diapers 24/7.
    Been in diapers for decades.

    I'd probably feel like my life might end if I ever lost the ability to drive.

    With that said, I know and have met fellow ABDLs irl and I'm definitely glad I was able to. Still though, meeting fellow ABDLs isn't a simple (and often common) matter. But being mobile definitely helps the chances.

    Anyway, I can't emphasize with you, but I can appreciate how much it would suck to not be able to drive (let alone being blind and/or having other disabilities).

    Maybe look into Uber. I'm not sure what the cost is, but it should be at least better than being housebound.
