    No. That is simply disappointment.
    Or maybe disillusionment.

    If it's treated with medication,it's not a big deal. You need to disclose the medication,but most meds for depression are not controlled substances.

    What if it's your Primary Care doctor's opinion/diagnosis rather than a psychiatrist? Would that carry equal weight if it ever ended up in court for any reason?

    What, why? Because you could get the same rate for doing dry van?

    Which brings up my question that I've been wondering about for quite awhile: If a person is crazy, do you think that person knows it in their own mind that they are crazy? LoL

    "If you weren't depressed before you got into trucking, trucking will make you depressed while doing it." LOL

    Trucking might help solve depression. You will get away from all people making you feel depressed. Lots of time it can be the people around you making you feel depressed. It’s something people don’t talk about, why someone is depressed. So they just assume it’s the persons problem and not looking at the big picture of the people around them.

    People should watch the movie The Breakfast Club from 1985 if they are depressed. It’s will show you how the people around you can be making you feel depressed and you don’t realize it.

    The crazy girl in the movie tells a very big secret about how her family treats her and then the others open up about their family. That’s what people don’t talk about how family can actually be the start or problem in depression. That’s how trucking can help by getting someone away from the problem. It’s the family and the people around you making someone depressed.

    If anyone is depressed you NEED to watch the movie The Breakfest Club from 1985.

    Indeed.

    I got into trucking (in part) because there I spend far less time with/around people who are annoying (or otherwise toxic).

    Great movie. I liked “all the right moves” too and the original Red Dawn. Sixteen candles was pretty good.
