It means nothing, but its one of the little things that, silly as it is keeps me going.
We had our first formal assessment today, a ‘standard’ patient, who is an actor pretending to be a patient and we have to take a history from them ; you know, whats wrong with them, how they feel about it, etc etc.
I managed to get most of the information I needed in 12 minutes and she liked me enough to give me an empathy score of 7/7 (huggy-feely score) and said that she felt really comfortable talking to me.

It is of course entirely arbitrary, and the last SP I saw was less than impressed with me. But still, little things like that reassure me that I made the right choice, and its all going along ok.
