    Default Newbie from clayton

    I named myself cheeseball because i'm from wisconsin. I'm pulling my hair out because i cannot work on vechicles like i used to, due to my disability of neuropathy. Finally started being able to move again and halfway function normally. I have a 96 chevy pickup and it is driving me crazy. I have been out of the field of mechanics for a long time and am trying to get back into it. Nothing is like it used to be, so i am kind of learning all over again. This starting problem is getting harder to figure out without the proper tools. Obviously money is tight so i am trying to do things myself.

    Welcome to the Club! While not the same as neuropathy, I have essential tremors which makes doing mechanical work difficult and frustrating. But, perserverance and time helps. I eventually get things done.
