sometimes everything seems bleak...written () ago
dont really know what else to say. intrusive thoughts are bad. i feel numb and crappy. im great at putting on a front so no one else sees but now im sat at home, alone, being ignored by my cat and wondering why i bother. so i sit here far too much in my own head, with thoughts and feelings swirling around leading to the downwards spiral which consists of mostly blackness, tears and wanting to polish off the bottle of bacardi in my kitchen.
It starts tomorrow!written () ago
I have my first therapy session tomorrow with the university mental health team. typically the past week im actually feeling a bit better but thats likely because some of the stress of assignments has been lifted and got to go on a mini holiday (amsterdam).
haha possibly not a great thing for me to know how to do xD theres a few people who would be on that list....- written - voted for by Jebus-Zeus
When are your parents looking to move? If theyre planning such a big relocation chances are thatll take them a fair amount of time to organise and do. Stick at the job, often there is a probation period which is frustrating but it means the people that pass it are more likely to stick around.
If you parents arent planning on moving until after your probation is over i would say bide your time and save and save. That way no matter the outcome youll be secure.
And theres nothing wrong with still being at home at 26, i know people much older that havent meant to move out. And people like myself who moved out at 18. It all depends on the person, circumstances, money etc. Never feel shame for moving at your lifes own pace!- written - voted for by Max

I told everyone from the old Help that I have on my FB friends list. I got some great responses :)
did you tell Jebus Lepoudus Zeus? Think his username was just Jebus but i cant remember!
No, he isn't on my FB list
I shall inform him!
I always hate leaving jobs. I hate feeling like a disappointment to my employer/higher ups, but you need to do what’s right for you!
If it’s possible, can you start with a couple of hours at the new job and take a few less hours at the old one and slowly phase the one out into the new?
im more worried about the residents than my coworkwers to be honest. and no the new job would be full time and the current one is full time so i would be doing one or the other.- written
hey yeti :)
i work as a care assistant at the moment so alot of that doesnt apply. and the next job is an assistant psychologist which is what i need for my doctorate experience and also yes pays alot more! ive not been at my current job for 2months yet so not had time to get bonuses or letters like that. also i cant get a payrise to anything like i could get and i have to do various qualifications to get small ones. and my clients are the residents i look after, i feel kinda bad because ive formed a friendly bond with some of them.
Oh, care assistant? I mean not to denigrate, but thought you had been higher on the ladder, so to speak. Not much cause for worry in leaving, as this training simply falls short of your ultimate goal as psychologist - or so you could state without prevaricating in the least.
Methinks it's the nature of the job, in a way. The closer you are to doctor, the more distant from your patients, in the modern world. A necessary sacrifice.
haha i thought id be able to jump in somewhere higher up too but that wasnt the case and i needed a job. luckily the residents are very relevent to me and part of me does enjoy the work so definitely done better than most of my graduating friends who have no idea what to do or where to start.- written

i havent yet got access to it, i will soon once ive done all the madatory ones which im actually sat trawling through now xD what a fun saturday....an what can i say Docteur...i make time when its worth it hehe- written
oh i have done that but annoyingly there are no opportunities that will what i need for my doctorate other than the baseline of care experience. theres the odd bit of e-learning i can do but theres not enough of the clinical population relevent to require an assistant psychologist job there- written
