Smile New to the site and has a question.... :)

Hello!

I am so glad to have found this site. I can't believe I didn't search for a message board like this sooner. It is a rarity to find others like yourself, so to be able to communicate with others who have CP is exciting. I can't wait to get into the swing of things!

I might be the only one, but I thought it would not hurt to ask....

Do any of you that have a problem with visual perception find it difficult to sometimes back out of a parking space if you are between two cars? I had that issue tonight and last week too. Thankfully, God blessed me with a guardian angel tonight that helped me back out.....

I would love to know if there are others here who experience something similar.

Thanks so much!

I think I know what you mean. For me if the steering wheel were not left perfectly straight when the car was parked I would have trouble with it. I have always had trouble driving in reverse. My main visual issue driving though is merging onto a highway or changing a lane. I feel I cannot judge how far other cars are from me, or be able to quickly make the decision to merge or wait, even though I have passed all depth perception vision tests. Consequently I am very afraid of driving and only do it when I absolutely must.
