Rookie driver medical question

What type of heart pump? I am more curious than anything. I don’t know of a heart pump. If it was a pacemaker then yes you can drive with approval from Cardiologist (obviously that’s a blanket statement not knowing your history or medications) but if a defibrillator was also attached (many are 2 in 1) then no you can not drive. But only your doctors can determine if you are healthy enough to drive.

Sexism In Trucking From A Woman's Perspective

Rainy that was impressive. Sounds like we have alot of the same qualities. I have worked in a male dominated field my entire life. It still amazes me the female “victims” out there. I will be starting my trucking career very soon. I meet with my Terminal Manger Tues. Kudos to you Rainy.

I've been kind of wondering what was up with you. I'm really glad to hear of your success! What happens next?

I still have 2 weeks left in school. Our school is ran a bit different. We actually get our CDL after pre trip, skills test but we then we go through a pretty challenging qualification for the school having to qualify on a 9 speed with one instructor then qualify on a 10 speed with another instructor. Only then can we DOT road test. We then get our CDL license.

Now our school is one of very few schools that allow students to start solo driving (with another student with CDL). Now we will have the school side of skill testing to obtain our school certificate.

It’s taken me awhile to figure out what route I wanted to do as far as hauling. I have decided not to do flatbed and really have little interest in refrigeration.

I want to do tanker. Dry van is an option as well.

I would really like to be involved in relief help but have no idea if there are companies that specialize in such.

Very nice diary. It has been a good read. I would love to hear about your on the road training. The good and the bad. I feel this will be the most challenging part of the whole process. Hope things are going well.

Changed Handle

FYI I changed my handle. I am in school obtaining my CDL. The class calls me Grandma and it has stuck. Not because I am slow but because I am older. I am the second oldest in the class. I have become a life mentor to many classmates. They wanted to call me Mom but I said no to that. I said as a Grandma I could enjoy their company, give advise but I am not their Mom, Grandma’s can kick their butts home. 😂😂😂
