Myelitis and MS - need advice living with a disability

I was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis in 2015 and then later MS. I started with a walking stick and graduated to a walker.  My mobility is getting worse and I'm waiting for spinal surgery, so I was just thinking about getting a mobility scooter. I've just had a letter from DVLA telling me that my driving licence has been revoked because I have an eyesight problem that's not under control and I know this can't be resolved quickly, so I'm definitely looking for a scooter now.

I'm used to being independent (although my husband is a fantastic support), but now I'm starting to need more advice on living with a disability, so that's what brought me here!
