It took a few years. I had to get a driving assessment. Then I had to learn to drive with the spinner knob. Finally, I got a restricted license. And now I drive anywhere I want.

What's a spinner knob?  Some kind of addition to the car to make it easier to drive?


It took me almost 8 yrs after being in a coma. Practiced by driving the lawn mower, lol. But it worked on getting my reflexes & distance perception in sync.
