Inability to Drive Is a Closely Guarded Secret

DEAR ABBY: This is embarrassing. I am 30 and don't drive. I have extreme anxiety and a learning disorder that affects my visual spatial perception. I try to hide this as much as possible, but I'm worried the truth will come out. Should I disclose it to employers? New friends? Acquaintances? -- PANICKED IN PENNSYLVANIA

DEAR PANICKED: If there is a medical reason for your inability to perform certain tasks, your employer should be informed. However, I see no reason to reveal this to acquaintances or new friends. Fewer people drive these days, and many of them don't because of the expense involved or access to public transportation.
