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

^ Fasting is so tough, nomnom. I hope you manage to find and embrace those steps to make it work for you. 1) First week of placement 2 was a mind-blowing total 180 from placement 1 (- in a good way!). 2) Feeling like I really need to stop, reflect and regroup to make the most of these next 6 months...

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

1. A month before fasting starts. A little bit apprehensive. It really affected me last year with work and university deadlines, with this being the final year, I really can't afford any mistakes. On top, I've been losing weight anyway due to lack of sleep and poor appetite so fasting for 30 days wo...

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

1. The last 3 and a half days have been surreal. People really have the power to change how one is feeling by just being present. 2. Weekend in Southend :D Followed by a week off for university work (that's the plan!) 3.How is it still so cold and snowing? Where is spring 2018?! 4. Next month holida...

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

^ Yes! You’ve got this! Thank you :) 1. I am so tired. Why is it that sleep leaves me when I need it most? 2. My plan is to comfort eat and start uni work over this bank holiday weekend- it will go some way towards making me feel more in control of things...I hope. 3. Already thinking about another...

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...
