Does anyone have any advice on how to get your vehicle adapted so you can keep driving?

Hello @xxmyye, thank you for opening this discussion. Let me tag some other members who can possibly share with you
Hi everyone, how are you today? Have you gotten your car adapted so that you can continue driving or to make it easier for you to ride as a passenger? If so, what have you had done? Can you share any advice?

I have not needed to get my car adapted yet. So far I'm doing fine with my MS as far as getting in and out of vehicles.

My biggest problem with driving is I no longer have the confidence driving to places that I'm not use to. This has caused me to not drive across town. Afraid of being in the wrong lane when I need to exit, getting off the expressway. My doctor is on the other side of town & when I have an appointment I make sure my husband can be off work to take me. Sometimes driving the same place I drive every week I have to really think am I in the right lane, it's as if I forget. I drive as little as possible because I do not feel comfortable.

I wrecked my car in April and I was not hurt but insurance totaled my car. So I stopped driving I couldn't afford to get another one. So I use my electric wheelchair and ride the bus. I have neuropathy in my feet and legs. Unable to feel the pedals anymore. Didn't have any other accidents no one was hurt so I decided to give up driving.
