I have just been told I can't drive because I have CP and extreme startle reflex but believe this is due to part anxiety and not to CP. I am over 30 
and trying to o obtain 
a driver license any 
advice to help me achieve my goal?

    Hi @Aubrey Welcome on joining and hope you come join the community chat rom to chill out and type on any type anything. Now Aubrey you have been told you can not drive and this tells me you will be putting other people in danger. I may sound harsh but I'm being honest. If that is - "if "you caused accident and was told not to drive the law will not take this lightly. You have anxiety now again this is a type of illness that your brain is not 100% clear which again on top of CP. I would in my situation not drive and that would be hard. It is not clear if you are having any treatment for your anxiety to control it. I am not sure if you are having counselling. Aubrey you say achieve your goal well look at it this way, you will achieve your goals to get your Anxiety controlled that first is an achievement, then look at your CP ask what chances is there to have permission to drive don't shut it out it is there. If you scroll down we have a list of further help just click on and share your views, go on the Talk About specific conditions CP Keep safe.
