    You need transportation, and I wonder if you’ve ever considered something like this:

    It was what I learned to drive on, long ago. Like Larry, I’m essentially one-eyed because of amblyopia in the right eye. I never did have any depth perception, but have learned to make allowances for it. Yes, you’re more “exposed” in case of collision, but knowing that makes you more careful.

    I actually *have* considered that– but with the way people drive around here, I don’t know whether I’d be even remotely safe taking it out on the road. It’s not just depth perception; it’s that my spatial perception is screwy in general– there have been times when I misidentified which lane a car was in. And that’s ignoring the tendency to space out when there’s too much visual info to deal with…

    I am exhausted after reading this post.
    Maybe its is because I can identify with it all too well.
    It isn’t just in job searching, either.
    Sometimes even a trip to the grocery store is like that.

    @e: Oh yes. Grocery trips, as I’ve commented in other posts here, often sap me of energy for several hours afterward.
