Naomi from California

This is a real-life "DRIVING MISS DAISY" story :-) My mom Lady Rebecca Price is 81 years old & on NO MEDICATION. She raised us & now we are helping her. I moved back home from Texas 1 & 1/2 years ago. She doesn't like being alone & she'd started complained about her knees hurting until I encouraged her to go to an exercise class. Although she still drives, I now do most of the driving, especially for long distance trips. So, along with daily tasks, I'm now "Driving Miss Daisy"! But my Mom is worth it!
