After months of pain in the ball of my foot while driving the package car I was diagnosed with some kind of nerve problem in my foot caused by the foot pressure on the clutch. The work comp doctor said no clutch until they figure out what to do about the nerve issue. Could be mortons neuroma. Kinda like carpel tunnel but in the foot. Of course UPS said they will not allow me to drive one of the automatics in my building until my foot issue is resolved so I have been put to work on car wash and preload. I think I am probably one of the oldest females to ever be put in the feeders unloading.. 48 and counting.. and I felt all of my years when I hit the school books and reams of paper to get out of the belly of the feeder and up on the rollers. All of the others drivers except one think it is crazy to put me out of my package car when I can still do the job. They all want to know why they just don't give me an automatic. The mechcanic does not want to put one on my route because I go on dirt and sand roads that he claims will ruin the automatics. The hours are killing me trying to adapt to the 130 to 930 shiflt. Sleeping in the swimming pool does not work.
