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

2.) I love my new job. It's the most rewarding but challenging thing I've done in a while. I'm teaching in a school for teenagers with social, emotional, and mental health difficulties.

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

Re: Cringeworthy things you said in an interview

Rhapsodyinred... that was a beautiful read :lol: the masturbation thing definitely would have popped into my head too! And shame about the bra but clearly they didn't mind!! At least it was a nice bra and not a sweaty old one ;)

Re: Shocking true confessions - My Selection Hell

I'm not sure about that... I went to a rubbish state school and got taught covering letter/personal statement and also had 2 lectures on it at a (top, admittedly) non-Russell university.

Re: Coping with news of a former patient's suicide

You definitely have the right to grieve... however you're feeling, you have the right to feel. Any loss is hard, particularly a loss by suicide. I am glad that you are trying to comfort yourself. If they left the unit happy then you definitely all did a great job xx

Re: The Cathartic thread - rant here!

I am so sick of near-faceless upper-level management making decisions that affect ground floor clinical working practices without actually consulting clinical staff.... not only do their "solutions" not work and cause tons of issues... but we also have no idea of the problem they are trying to fix! ...

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

Hope you feel better soon and wishing you lots of luck for your interview on Friday! That sounds like a good plan - I'm not applying this year as I need a little bit more time under my belt and after the difficulties with DClinPsy applications this year I'm trying to look after myself and boost my ...

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

1. I hate calling in sick to work but I'm definitely glad I did on Thurs & Fri 2. Feel guilty though as A/L either side means some patients have had big gaps in their therapy 3. Trying to prepare a KSA while ill is proving almost impossible 4. Brain please kick into gear... mild fever + fatigue = co...
