Does it ever get any easier for a rookie in trucking??

They told me I'm ready but I don't think I'm ready, I don't feel ready. My OTR instructor got mad a couple of times because I was going too slow (I don't speed, not even in my car) or I will slow down before the curves, he wasn't really happy about it. I have to work on my backing. I asked them about the mentor program but they don't have any females mentor and the male don't want to mentor a girl, they said I need to have more confidence on myself and to stop being so hard on myself. I really want to do a good job, I will hate to screw up, they want me to start solo next week... I'm excite, nervous...too many mix feelings... How do you know if you are ready??? Does it get any easier?

Thanks....
