No longer able to drive

Due to the increased pain meds and the kind of meds I'm now on for stage 4 carcinoid cancer, it's a felony for me to drive on this medication.

I'm really struggling with this...  I understand, I don't think I should be behind the wheel while on Dilaudid.  But, it's hard to know that I can't just hop in the car and run to the store or run an errand, or take mayself to the drs office.  I guess I just hadn't anticipated this.  :(

That is so hard.  My husband who has had his driving privileges taken away 4 times due to his illness has a hard time each time.  He gets better and then can drive, but each time it knocks his spirits down for a minute, but our family is very good and will take him anywhere he wants to go.  Hang in there, you will be back behind the wheel before you know it.

Have Faith.. God Bless you!

Well, just try to hang in there...it is soooo hard.  Maybe you can find a neighbor close or a friend to help out.  I will pray for you and a swift recovery.  God bless you.
