    Recently got diagnosed with fibromyalgia and it's caused me to not be able to do my current job (working at 30+ feet on a ladder and carrying over 100lbs) and I'm trying to see if it's possible to get back to trucking with fibromyalgia. I got my CDL back in 2019 and I did 4 months of training with Wiley Sanders and it turned me off of trucking but I think it was the trainer I had. He was a horrible person who was so negative about everything and trying to change trainers didn't do anything. I've been wanting to come back for awhile but I don't know what company to go with if I can drive. I live in southern Alabama if that helps. I really appreciate any help y'all can give me

    All you need is a new DOT physical, pass a drug test and a company that will hire you and give you a refresher course.

    I appreciate the help. KLLM was one of the companies I looked at before I went with Wiley Sanders. Does anyone have any experience with them? I was also looking into Werner but I'm not sure if they have a refresher course

    I'm also wondering about refresher courses. Can we go pay for them out of pocket if need be? Cost? If anyone knows please let us know. Thanks
