    Was a bit disappointing, tbh. No new clinical footage, just selected "highlights" (Lucy crying, Katherine taking blood from a foot, Adam getting ridiculously excited about giving frusemide, Suzi and the man with the toilet brush) and them chatting about how their experiences have made them grow...

    Oh. Sounds naff. Probably trying to re-drum up interest in the second series. Might give it a pass then.

    It was a bit tedious, especially given that they already did a highlights show earlier in the year. Looking forward to season 2 though - apparently it's only 2 FY2's and the rest are FY1's.

    re. Season 2, I've bumped into a couple of them during filming. I've been on an off-camera ward round with one F1 - he seemed nice. The other I've never had direct contact with. She seems quite... dressy.

    Doing what took weeks at A-Level in a 1-hour lecture is a surreal experience.

    Just had a meeting with my mentor which **** me right up. Apparently getting drunk and playing video games is not bolstering my C/V and I should be doing something more productive. Who knew?

    What exactly are you finding difficult? The workload? The concepts? Balancing work and play? Fitting in?

    Some non-specific advice: your Facebook news feed tells one story - people are fantastic at putting on fronts - but I guarantee that everyone has similar feelings to you (and we've all been through it on here). It might take a while to find those people you're happy sharing those feelings with, or to adapt your note taking & learning to the large amorphous blob of facts that is pre-clinical, but it will get better!

    First which uni? If imperial then if you want we can meet up/ have a chat if you like (done this with a few of the non med freshers)

    As for everything else pretty much what BT said. By the end of the 2nd week I was a total state having been out to much and sober too little. Stick with it, most people are terrified of it not making sense/workload in the first few weeks. Don't let it beat you. Those that feel fine are normally either lying or people who will struggle when the bookwork is over. Yes there are a few people who can do it all who make you feel like **** but you get that at all levels. Ignore them.

    Why haven't you started working? Is there any topic in particular you're finding hard? Maybe at your next lecture you could sit next to a group of people and start chatting to them, hopefully then you can start making friends

    I have just been lazy and not in the mode to study. ( my mistake )

    Yeah i'm trying that now, but it just seems not to work.

    I have been quite a shy person from childhood.

    any advice how I can change myself.?
