I had my license for about ten years all together but, that was times before surgery till I was about 27 years old. I had it back a couple years after each surgery. I am without it now since 2009. I walk a lot "when it's not freezing cold". I live in the lower part of Michigan so, I have a couple months that are hard.

I only had mine for a year so I never drove. When my kids were young I had to ask others for rides also but never felt like a burden. Most times people are quite happy to be able to help. But since you once drove you
must feel terrible not to-which is why you don't feel the same.
But what if this happened to someone you knew instead? You'd be happy to help them also! Your frame of mind needs to adjust to your new situation. In my state, RI. I am able to get a free bus pass and busses go all over. Many times when I speak of going somewhere by bus someone will over to drive me instead and
I tell them no thanks. I'm now 61 on permanent disability and my state has ride programs for this. Look
into your state's disability programs you may be pleasantly surprised
