I was previously a sheet metal worker, but made a career change decision after the umpteenth redundancy. The original plan was to train as a paramedic, kinda skewed into Mental Health. At least I will be able to secure a bed for myself at some point :)

Slightly off topic here, but that is quite the career change! I wish you well in it. I think you made a good choice by going with mental health over paramedic. Paramedic suffer a high rate of stress and anxiety due to the type of work they do. All the best in your new career!

Thanks, it's a bit late in the day at 45 for a career change, but fingers crossed, all goes well. Not used to all this studying lark! :)

Got my Masters a few years ago. It was intense. Promised the husband I'd wait a decade or two before pursuing a doctorate. Someday though...

You DO know PhD means Piled Higher and Deeper, right? ;)

Not really, my wife made a career change at about the same age. Went from medical secretary to OR nurse. I'm sure you'll do just fine. As for me, I'm always taking new courses. Probably start work on my next designation shortly.

By then the kids will be gone and then you'll have time, right?

Oh I know full well. Perhaps I should do a ThD instead. Doctorate in Theology. Theologically Higher and Deeper.
