    After successfully avoiding it for 16 months, its time to start on the systematic literature review. How I wish a narrative review was sufficient Back to being a grumpy cow after a lovely few days of feeling semi-human.

    I do love him, but f*$k me, we've been living in a building site now for 2.5 YEARS.

    At this rate I'm tempted to do him in, get the insurance and hire people to finish all those little jobs he'll 'get to'.........

    Doing a PHD is hands down the worst decision I have ever made.

    I knew it was going to be hard, but I feel like I am drowning constantly- nothing I do is right, possibly because they are leaving me to guess. I'm beginning to see why 50% of people never finish- if I had another offer I would pack it in tomorrow and come back to this project when I was actually in a position to improve things for patients!

    Also, how hard is it to date while doing a PHD?!?! If I'm not busy with work, I am a grump about work, and inevitably just wanting someone to say nice things and bring me tea. Somehow the relationship was easy enough to manage- but having to be pleasant on dates is feeling like a herculean effort at the moment. Aghh what is wrong with my brain

    48 pages worth of comments on Friday at 4.30, but I should be sure to 'take care of myself this weekend". How exactly do you think I am going to be able to do that when this fucking 130 page report is due on Wednesday!? Hope you enjoyed your week off when you didn't bother to get comments back to me on each chapter individually as we agreed, leaving me a whole fucking pile to do all at once. Courtesy of these impossible expectations I have worked everyday for the last 26 days straight- prior to which I worked steadily from January to get that other set of reports in... Which part of this is conducive to 'preventing young researcher burnout' and 'healthy work like balance'?

    Actually, all this could be shorted to up yours supervisors. Someone please bring me a bottle of wine and a beautiful young man to cook for me and massage this massive knot out of my neck.

    Argh Bil is making a fuss about taking grandad to hospital. I already have an appointment that day but he wasn't me to move it drive an hour and a half to grandad, take him to the appointment them take him home and drive an hour and a half back with the baby in tow. He lives almost next door and probably wouldn't take much more than an hour and a half. He isn't even my grandad and I'm already thr one staying with him post operation looking after him and a baby. Oh and I have mastitis again or possibly something worse so thanks in laws for never contacting us bit always expecting me to do the running around. Selfish dicks the lot of them.

    You're kicking off because I said a friends son can stay on the sofa and you don't believe that he asked because he's off up other end of the bloody country to pick up a track bike today. So your friends are never random? You're not even home tonight and haven't been all week.

    Nah mate, you can jog on. Life's too short for your shit.

    Wow just wow. Turns out coffee mornings are exactly what I expected. Safe to say I won't be going to anymore.

    Always thought no meant no, but apparently if you are 89yrs old and say no, despite being compos mentis, you will be ignored! And people will carry on doing tests and procedures you have adamantly refused!

    I'm not coping. I can't do this anymore. I don't even feel like I'm treading water, I'm just drowning. I'm too tired and worn out to fight any more.

    Well, somebody's cute little sales tactic has just cost the agency a loss of goodwill and - to be frank - having previously been given much co-operation, trust.

    Waiting for phone calls from organisations.

    If you tell me you'll call on a certain day then at least have the courtesy to email if you haven't time. Equally it'd be rather lovely if you'd bother to tell the intermediary anything at all instead of leaving us all in limbo. Although after a week I think it's fair to say you don't want me, and even if it turns out you do I'm really not sure I want to associate with an organisation with so little respect for its people.

    Just when I thought things were starting to look up, I'm now facing a "disciplinary" at work because I walked away from a conversation in tears. A conversation about how I'm "taking things personally" when I'm angry and upset that I get bollocked for doing what I've been told to do by one member of management, because it's not what the other management has told everyone else to do.

    I'm now beginning to see how people get so ground down they just give up.

    Cried at work on Thursday, boss is being massive douche and work is so crazy (got a deadline end of May I can't possibly meet) that I might just turn grey from stress and...

    I just want to give up.

    It doesn't help he's away until the wedding and all I have for company is the cat.

    The integrated research ethics application portal and HRA processes to get approval to do research are so fucking complicated you need a bloody PHD just to navigate them. I had my documents ready to go on January 25th and I am only just getting to submit them now! This is insane.

    Also, I love that he wants to talk to me on the phone every night, but the time difference is killing me. I wish he would hurry up and get back to Ontario so he was just 4 hours behind, not 8. I need more than 6 hours sleep!

    Also, twitter trolls. Do fuck off. Where I was born has exactly 0 relevance to the research I am promoting on Twitter. If you haven't got anything better to do with you time than send me random, xenophobic abuse, that says more about your life than mine (but still bloody hurts me!)

    end rant.

    Sick of being so bloody poor. I don't want to live extravagantly, would just like to be able to afford to live.
