I didn't want to revive old ones. :0 First the medical. It was suggested to go to a place that specalizes in DOT, CDL physicals. (and it was cheaper then family Dr. plus family Dr. normally has week wait for non-emergency) To be fair if I feel something is wrong he will tell me to come in/see me dang near as soon as I get there. Anyway they do blood draw/blood/glucose meter. "190" I am in shock. Then BP "158/110" She leaves and I am walking around room. Thinking insulin, diet changes (massive) weight loss (ok thats needed) I come up with "That MUST be wrong. So 2nd test. "79" and bp of 142/90" (IMO with stress thats not too far out of line) So couple more minutes and I passed BP as well. So I have wasted afternoon, over $100 med check, buy items for road that I have no use for otherwise, swing by to get truck. "Larry don't know how to tell you. They decided to hire one of their own drivers" Trip is off. I have route, rest stops, Times for avoiding major cities/rush hr... IF I had not had some other stuff to do I would have been on road BEFORE they canceled... Yep trucking is a fun job. Even when you are doing it just for a "lark" and to help out friend. (he gets paid balance when truck is back in TN) I am requesting they pay for my physical. And sugest he get paid bill before he hands over keys.
