Well as some members on here know already .

Today at 12 noon my life was shattered. I will be having my driving licence revoked owing to Glaucoma.

This means only one thing the Green Goddess will have to be sold as i will not be able to driver her anymore :(

I will word out an advert for her later on when things have sunk in a little more.

If in the meantime anyone is seriously interested in her please pm me.

Aw, I'm really sorry to hear that.

Are you sure the diagnosis means you're permanently barred from driving ?

Is there no treatment that might improve your condition so that can drive again ?

Is there anyone who you'd trust to drive you around in the cat - I think that's what I'd try do if I were faced with a decision like yours.

Can't really comprehend how you must feel. So sorry to hear your news.

Bad enough losing your pride and joy, but that's just a material thing.

I wish you well in your life in general - a car is just a car and your life is more precious.

Best Wishes.

Phil.

Thank you everyone for your wishes. She is now officialy for sale http://www.jaguarforum.com/showthread.php?t=104280&p=1046948#post1046948

I will shed a tear if and when she goes thats for sure. But My health is more important at the moment. Those who have asked unfortunately there is no way back from Glaucoma. It can be slowed down but not stopped. My eyes have gone from 1.75 for reading to 3.80 + So driving glasses are not available owing to dvla guidelines on eyesight :( to which i have failed this test 2 times now.

At least you still have all your memories from past road trips. Stay positive and I hope your car goes to a new enthusiastic owner.
