Tomorrow is my 16th birthday and I can't even look forward to it..
I know that's pretty dramatic, and let me tell you, I'm not one to be dramatic, but I need to vent. I've always looked forward to driving. All my friends went or are going straight to the DMV to get their permits on their 16th bday. Except for me. I have low vision and am legally blind. I can still see perfectly fine like anyone else, just I have to see up closer. That makes it really difficult for me to drive. Although I have ridden horses all my life, and even event them with no problem, my visual acuity limits me to not being able to drive in my state because of the law. It really sucks. I don't want to accept it because I think of all the things I won't be able to do. I'll never be able to drive my trailer, I'll never be able to go anywhere without my parents or someone taking me, and what about a job?! How am I going to be able to drive myself to work? It's just really upsetting that I can't do these things. Everyone takes it for granted that they can drive. They act like it's their right. Especially my friends. They find it hard to understand my situation. I can't really relate to anyone about it. If anyone actually reads this whole thing, thank you so much. I just hope someday I can get my license.
