    good on you for having the courage to speak to your mentor. he/she obviously found it difficult to relate to you around the issue. does the hospital provide any free councelling service / if so that might be the way to go. good luck with the rest of your training.

    keep going do not despair, a lot of us have been in the same situation as you.My first placement for anyone that can remember was at Scotton Banks in Harrogate. I constantly had to wonder what I was doing on a geriatric ward like you, feeding, dressing and removing faeces from the wall in some rooms.but I kept going.keep yopour head down and work. hopefully your next placement will have a preceptor that will engage with you and support your learning.

  • Comment on: Babies born via C-section more likely to develop autism

    as a parent you cling to any theories that might help you find out why you child has autism. my eldest suffers from the condition , he will be 30 next week. i had him by elective c-section after years of fertility treatment.
    my 3 rd child was deliverd by an emergency c-section . I also have a 3rd child born in the middle of my two sections.
    only my son has autism. still hope one day for a answer to why it occurs.

    I suppose as a aprent you want any answers to why a child has autism.

    my youngest is 26 and she was born by emergency c-section. in between those two I had a normal delivery also.
    niether of my 2 girls suffer from autism just my son.
