    Dang bug has been nasty this year. My wife has been coughing for two months and just in the last week is seeing it subside. And now that I’m done trucking, I’ve got to get my sugar under control. Good luck, man!

    On month number three for me. Just spent 4 days in the hospital. Going to specialists for test results on Tuesday. On top of all that, was told I’m type 2 diabetic early last week.
     
    Captain Zoom Thanks this.

    That’s rough. Part of the reason I left trucking was to take better care of myself as I am also Type 2 with no other family history. I hope you can shake this thing soon!

    I’m considering leaving trucking right now. Just not sure how I’m going to replace the lost income. My only other job experience is 21 yrs of dealership Parts experience.
     
    Captain Zoom and 48Packard Thank this.

    I’m 57, and am developing a home-based business. Fortunately, our house is paid for otherwise I’d still be driving out of necessity.
     
    Captain Zoom Thanks this.

    I've been considering returning to the car business.

    Thing is, now I live in North Central Butt Crack, Mississippi. Different market than Indianapolis.

    Anyway I'm pretty happy here at Big M.

    No, but it's only a half mile to the creek and The Hot Chick can usually get some eatin' food with her fishin' pole or her shootin' gun.
