    Waiting to see how it goes. Maybe it is the FM. No matter what, you should get at least 6 mo. under your belt for your own good. The key is not to jump too soon and make sure you do your homework first.

    Blind Dog, just a thought here but maybe they are putting you through a 6 month "boot camp" so to speak. Like others have said, maybe if you hang in there long enough things will get better and I hope it does get better for you. I will be finishing cdl school in 2 weeks and am still considering going with TMC and I have a question for you (or anyone else here who can answer) reguarding TMC. What is the chances of being rejected (sent home) during training? What does it take to get through their training and how many people dont make it?

    you mean to tell me some of these guys may end their previous jobs and take a long bus or plane ride to del moines and get booted minutes of being there? im a healthy guy and i work out and eat right and i had to take a physical not too long ago and my pressure was a lil high cuz of nerves....I would hate that to happen in orientation and come back home with no job. Scary part im trying to get over that if i come to orientation im leaving a 5 year job.

    Just go see your doc before you go. If there are any concerns he can give you meds to control it. That would be acceptable.
    Also, the morning of the physical, don't smoke or drink coffee. Watch what you eat. No sugars, maybe just a bowl of cherrios or somthing like that.
    My heart rate somtimes increases during a blood pressure test. Just take deep breaths and think about somthing that really relaxes you. Maybe hanging on a beach in Hawaii.

    You can get a DOT physical on your own for like $60. Talk to them while your there.
