Starting a truck career with anxiety?

Instead of that drug talk to your doctorabout trying Lexapro if it is necessary to put you on medication for anxiety.I have passed my medical exam while taking it.It's use is for both depression and anxiety tho.

Quick question...

The ones you skip are ones you don't answer. If you don't answer a question at all, that question is not counted in your totals.

I know in Illinois the one's you pass on they do count against you.It's such a grand state to live in lol

Will companies accept this?

Instead of going through company paid training I'm going to get my cdl from a college in my state.Will most companies except this or no?Just curious about how this would work.Planning on going to Swift in December but would rather go this route because the state I live in is really messed up about their rules lol

Swift Drivers

There are a couple of companies that I was going for but I'm just gonna wait until December to go with Swift lol My question is overall how good is the company to you and how is the training in Nashville like?....The reason why I'm waiting until December is last year a got into a preventable accident and I saw where it must be a year without one.Thank you for your time and comments.
