Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. I can't do this 2. I have no idea what I am doing 3. I've always had issues when I'm in clinical posts, why did I think clinical training would be any different? 4. Nope, it's not just clinical posts, I spent plenty of my time as an RA miserable and anxious too, but I just attributed it to diffe...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2017 entry DClinPsy

I really wasn't sure if I should post or not, I've been largely avoiding the forum this year as I felt a little stressed with it last year. 2014 Leeds (withdrew, couldn't attend the interview) Newcastle (declined) Teesside (ended 1st reserve) Manchester 2015 Newcastle (declined) Teesside (ended top...

I hope our the vets news isn't as bad as we fear. 4. I'll have shiny new windows by the end of today. I might actu...

Re: Advice please: 2.2 and worries about conversion courses

Hi NaomiG I'm really sorry that you have been going through such a tough time. It sounds like you are managing things well however. I really don't know what to advice. It might be worth thinking about what Uni's you particularly want to apply to and look at their criteria. You might even be worth ph...

Re: What To Do...

Hi WindWhisperer I might be thinking totally differently from other people but reading your post it struck me that first and foremost the important thing is to look after yourself. If you take time away from mental health work, is it really such a bad thing? You have clinical experience and you will...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. I've just booked to have both my hamsters put down tomorrow. I feel sad :( :( 2. I also feel guilty but they are both suffering and it's not fair to keep them alive. 3. I just cried in my office after making the phone call. The secretary caught me and was lovely. 4. I will just have to make their...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1) My big worry thought at the minute is my academic reference for the next batch of Dclinpsy apps... one of my references isn't around this year so I need to find somebody else. Maybe someone from the foundation course I'm soon starting (not sure they will have known me well enough by then)... any...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. "significant history" ?! I did not use those words! 2. But the doctor doesn't know me, I've only seen him once 3. My medical records weren't enough to get me any additional support at uni, so why am I suddenly scared that they'll be enough to cost me a place on training? 4. This is not my first ...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2016

Just wanted to say good luck to everyone applying this year. Remembering my anxiety last year I wanted to check in and see how people were getting on. Really nice to see some people getting some greens and to see the support of the other applicants is continuing. x
