  1. Hi Andy. I live near Hampshire and I have worked in many schools around the area. I was training to be a teacher. I also have aspergers. If you want some comments about any school please PM me. I am sure you understand, but I'm not prepared to mention any particular school by name on the open forum. I don't want to knock any chances of future jobs.
  2. It's hard, teaching. I've just dropped out of my placement because of my aspergers getting in the way
  3. I've know. People who have one obsession their whole lives. I flit between a few. I have my stories, I love learning (sometimes I get obsessed with learning a language, at the moment it's maths) but then I can also become obsessed with things like sorting my DVDs and games. I get obsessed with computer games, but they never last long as I either complete them really quickly (especially puzzle games) or I grow bored of them. I've never been one to get obsessed over people though. Also, I find my obsessions come and go. I am always busy, but a full on obsession, which is all encompassing and I don't eat or sleep or even wash, I can tell when they start coming. I'm teetering on the edge of one now. So how does it affect you? I'm interested.
  4. My university tutor said he was happily give me good references. He also suggested teaching at university level. I feel so free in that I can do anything.
  5. Hi. I'm looking at the same thing. If I find anything, I will let you know
  6. Hi Thanks everyone for your kind words on my previous thread. A quick update. My mother in law died on Thursday. She has been fighting cancer. Was given a few months to live, and then died three days later. I live with the in laws and have lived here for over five years. Husband and father in law are distraught. I feel helpless. Now on to my teaching practise. I was told if I didn't leave I would be put on special measures. So on Wednesday (before the death of mother in law) I made the decision to stop my teacher training for now. I can go back in September, but I don't feel I will. I'm not in the spiralling depression I was in. It felt really good quitting the placement of the teacher training. Now I just have the normal sadness that you get with grief. I know a lot of you will think I've made the wrong decision to quit my teacher training. The good news is that I do have the option to go back if I decide (mitigating circumstance due to grief). But as it stands at the moment, I have no interest in going back. Quitting was the one good feeling I've had this week. I don't intend on doing nothing though. I'm going to be getting active in the local community with aspergers awareness. I do feel like I'm starting to get back to my old self again.
  7. As trekster said. Go see cab. They should be able to help
  8. Thanks everyone. I left. I'm creating another thread to explain because it involves a death in the family. Sorry to have let everyone down.
  9. I'm in placement all the time, so not actually in University. My university tutor, though, who I trust completely, said that maybe this route into teaching isn't for me. I think that the system doesn't allow for people like me to teach.
  10. I don't think this is worth it. I'm so very ill. I'm a diabetic too, and my sugars are off the scale.
  11. I don't even want to be a teacher any more. You are on show all the time, and I can't cope with that.
  12. I haven't been eating at all to be honest. And I'm not sleeping. I'm too anxious too.
  13. I have been talking to them about it. They are the ones who have told me I'm failing
  14. Trekster, my depression has come on since being told there are problems with my teacher training when I thought everything was fine. I'm not good enough. I feel like I'm useless, a failure and that I've let everyone down. And I hate the Aspergers
  15. I'm in the deepest depression I've ever been in. I don't normally get depression. Usually, if I have a knock back, I am sad for a few hours, maybe a day, and then I sort of bounce back. But I just can't shake this. I don't know how to get out of this. I can't see a light at the end. I just don't want to feel like this any more.
