I sure do, it's never nice to have to deal with and that was one of the things that unfortunately pulled me away from driving when I was close to passing my test and being able to drive on my own. I am hoping to one day be able to go back once my health is a little better as learning to drive is definitely something that is on my bucket list.
Far out, i can't realistically imagine what it'd be like not being able to jump in the car and just drive aye.
It's always (for me anyway) felt kinda liberating coz ya can freely travel wherever ya feel like—😄—plus i used to basically live in an old 1991 Toyota Sillycar(Celica) with my German shepherd for about a year,... just randomly traveling all over NZ, essentially "freedom camping".
(😅til my money ran out😂)
😃 Honestly can't begin to describe how much fun it was.
There was a tripppy woman who used to live next door, she was from the UK.(also a medieval reenactment enthusiast)
We used to share hilarious storys about her life experiences, and my exploits while "living on the road", she actually ended up buying a flash as beasty campervan-selling everything that couldn't fit and now travels the country with her corgi.
Hope someday you too can experience the freedom & liberation that comes with independent driving.
Whenever i'm driving and notice the peripheral shimmering beginning, i either quickly get to wherever i'm heading (if it's close enough) or just pull over(preferably a quiet side street) and wrap anything viable as a blindfold around my head to completely block out all light.
Then basically sit there focusing on something like the sensation of breathing in-and breathing out, sort of like a meditation.
Usually give it about half an hour before daring to peek out from the blindfold to check if the aura's finished doing it's thing, which it typically has(for me)-(though not always).
i'm guessing the docs probably prescribed ya some of the anti-migraine meds too?....mine did, years ago-but the meds didn't make any difference whatsoever aye.
Kinda frustrating trying to explain to the doc that it ain't doing jack—only to consistently be told just to keep taking them anyway.😅
Pretty certain they(the docs) haven't ever experienced a real migraine and are therefore incapable of even beginning to truly comprehend the reality we experience,... and frankly, i found that my attempts at explaining my subjective experience of migraines to the docs, were generally responded to with various degrees of invalidation/minimization.
(*technically amounting to unwittingly being abusive.)
(the labels on the meds said to take them immediately when noticing the migraine symptoms begin—so i did, and viola!...😂...like magic, the migraines just continued on unabated regardless,...🤣...blimmin absurd aye)
Best advice i can give with regard to learning how to drive(*and most crucially for building self confidence) is to ask someone you know you can rely upon-(who's patient & non-judgemental)-to take ya out to a rural/unpopulated location where you can take your time freely practicing driving at your own pace, without the intense stress of being surrounded by traffic & impatient (& sometimes comically hostile) drivers.
