    I've moved this to the UK forum as I believe your a UK student so will get more appropriate responses here.

    If this is not the case let me know and I'll pop it back

    We aren't here to make you cry. But we are just wanting to stress to you the importance of what you did. I think you do realize what happened and may need to have a to do list in the future to avoid confusion and mistakes of this sort. This way you can concentrate on things better when they come up. I take back my negative comments because I can't judge you or your ability from an online forum. good luck with the criticism you have given yourself and I hope it turns around for you. I do apologize for my words earlier.

    Its fine, and thankyou to everyone, i really mean that.

    I dont want this to be moved to a UK forum, i just want closure on the whole thing. I would like this thread to now be closed.

    I dont know what else can be said that hasnt already been said to me in way of advice and criticism, and i need to try and just move forward from this, otherwise my studies will get affected and i will just get ill from all the stress.

    I have thought about this carefully in my head, and i will be seeking academic support and clinical support when i go back out onto placement. I will make my next mentor aware of my wekanesses and i am also aware of what work i need to do between now and the next time i have my clinical placement.

    I would like to be able to move on now, to calm myself down, and focus on my studies.

    I know i cant change the past but i am in control of my future, and how to make my placements work for me.

    Ive really learnt a lot now on how to conduct myself on placement, and that you must take action for your own learning.

    I did say that i felt abandoned on placement and this is something that happens all too often, students end up feeling alone and in the deep end as a result. I do feel my mentor should have been around more, thats just my honest opinion though.

    As i say id like to be able to move on and keep a clear head, i cant ruin my health as i wont be good to anybody.
