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

1. Holiday went too quick and I'm back in the cold too soon... 2. I am tired. I've been back a week but all I want to do is sleep! 3. I have too much to do. I want to press pause on life but alas, I need to get moving with my uni work - 91 days to go! 4. Should probably start eating on a daily basis...

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

4. Why do I live in a place that is so cold that the air hurts my face? :shock: Agreed.... it's so cold out there! It's still so cold but at least the blizzards have stopped! 1. Holiday next week - to say I cannot wait is an understatement. Be gone current life. At least for 5 days! 2. I am finding...

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

1. The closer I am getting to the deadline, the more I am having to let go of everything else bothering me to focus on the course. 2. I need to remind myself I can only do so much. Effort from others is required too. 3. Holiday in 12 dayssss :mrgreen: 4. Why do I live in a place that is so cold that...

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

1. I am managing to get through each day by taking it one day at a time. I am ok at some points, need a little cry other times and then unsure for the rest of the time. But its allowing to function and I really need to hold on to that. 2. I am so thankful for the people in my life. Even though I can...

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

1. I broke up with him... I can't put in to words the hurt I am feeling right now. 2. The timing could not be worse. I have 4 months to finish my training. I really need to focus but all I want to do is curl up in bed and cry. 3. So much of everything wasted. 4. I don't know if I am brave or strong ...

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

1. That calm after the storms lasted all of 6 days :-( this last week has been horrific and I cannot understand why. I feel so lost, weak and confused. Letting go will hurt me I know but holding on is hurting me too :-( 2. I am utterly exhausted. God knows how I have functioned since Thursday with v...

Re: CBT in UAE?

Thank you both for your insights. I would hopefully be married and be there with my partner as I don't think I'd be comfortable living there on my own at all. It's something we are considering as temporary move but whilst he is slightly more laid on the issue, I do have my concerns hence the researc...

Re: CBT in UAE?

It's funny you mention this. I was recently considering applying for an academic post in the UAE. Eventually I decided against it due to human rights concerns. I grew up in Saudi Arabia (far, far more repressive than the UAE) and I know almost all the Gulf countries quite well. For a British immigr...

Re: CBT in UAE?

I think changingminds did some training out there, and I've heard of other people consulting. I'm not sure the higher salary would be enough incentive to overcome the repressive culture though :( It's the warmer climate that's appealing to me the most :mrgreen: - I really don't cope well with the r...

CBT in UAE?

Hi to all, I was wondering if anyone knew much about working as a therapist in UAE? I've heard nothing concrete but 'hearsay' that the work is more appreciated, better pay and general packages that are more appealing than the band 7 posts in the UK. It may be an option I consider when I finish my tr...

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

1. After what feels like a lifetime of being in several storms and not being able to get my bearings in this "relationship", I have finally found some grounding/peace since Saturday. It has taken so much out of me. I don't know how long this is going to last but I really want to hold on to this spac...

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

My condolences for your loss Lingua - please look after yourself during this difficult time. 1. This has been one of the longest weeks ever! 18 minutes until it finishes - wooo! 2. 2pm train to get home, back to GeordieLand :D 3. I am so in need of a break. No place like home turf to get my bearings...

3. I can't wait to get home and breathe.

4. I really need to do some university work...at some point.

5. STILL.SO.COLD.

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

1. This last week has been really difficult. Things are really taking their toll on me and giving me anxiety when I am not an anxious person. He needs to come back and I need to tell him. 2. I am concerned that because my head is not in things, that I am not doing as much as I should be doing regard...

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

1. This new dynamic between me and him is strange. Its not as simple as you either want to be with me or you don't. We had a very revealing conversation yesterday and I am hoping this encourages him to make a decision that reflects his goals rather than his fears. 2. I really need to focus on my uni...
