Hello all. Washington member
Been a back injury recipient since 92. i recently had my 3rd lower spine surgery last april-7th.
I had 7000lbs come back on me reinjuring my lower back nicely at L5/S1 (i enjoyed Sciatic agony for just under 2 years).....
Its been a little over 2 years now that it happened, i am entering the retraining process now for labor & industries here in Washington State.
I want to get my CDL and drive a semi since i can sit all day without pain unlike walking around or standing in one spot for more that 10 minutes or less. I have offeers to a job that doesnt load or unload so i want to atleast try..
I am wondering what type of jobs you all have trained for that you have actually benefitted from and found gainful employment that actually pays the bills?
Nobody wants to hire people with spine injuries due to the hazard excuse. Even if we would bebefit the company.
