Reply To: Do you drive a car with the GBS?

Not sure about my judgement, but I drove even when I couldn’t feel any sensation other than pins and needles, which lasted a full year (bad to play bass when you can’t feel your skin). Thing was, at the time I had a Mitsubishi 3000 twin-turbo and the clutch wore me out! I had to sell it… still miss that car almost as much as I do my vitality. But driving wasn’t all that bad even without being able to feel much of my body. In retrospect, driving when I shouldn’t was a part of denial that I was impaired… went for five years trying to pull myself up by my own bootstraps, till I realized I needed help. There are times I get into despair concerning loss of a career and so many other consequences, but I do my best to appreciate the fact that I drive well in my Honda Civic… beep-beep! I sure miss my sports car, though… darned %@_&@_#&#_ GBS… heheh
