      My son was diagnosed with HCM when he was 12 years old. He had a defibrillator implanted at the age of 17. He has never had an episode but due to him riding dirt bikes and does have slight scaring they felt he needed it.. Now he is 22 years old and has so many career ideas but, he most likely wont pass a physical due to limitations of not lifting over 50lbs. He was in college for engine repair and now he in school for the Applied process tech class, you can work at refineries. Just found out he most likely will not get a job in that field. His defibrillator is an issue, he thought about cardiac sonogram, it states you have to be able to lift over 50lbs. I don't know where to go now to help him. Any suggestions on careers? Any thoughts would be appreciated

          I'm an online store manager. Mostly I process orders and keep reports. It's not difficult and brings money.

                    I am a freelance writer from the US, check this pier webcam. Actually I started a s teacher of foreign languages, and then I changed my qualification for an interpreter. I was taking various written translations for several years until I was offered to write some blog posts. And I liked it. Since them, I have been engaged in content creation for different sites.

I was a truck driver and my doctor has had me off work since Dec. 20 and pulled my medical card after blacking out while driving the semi. All I have ever done is hard pyhsical labor like construction, mechanic and so on. I went back to driving due to back and knee.

                      Sounds like back to school to me but I have no idea for what. It seems that what I like and what I can do drastically different.
                      So sorry to hear that you are suffering from this condition. One of my friends also have the same problem and he is now working as a instructor in labour hire company Brisbane. If you want to do job then visit any labour hire agency and do job there as an instructor. It is one of the best and easiest way for you to do job.
