Despite having played a long time, I feel like I could use a bit more handholding to (re)learn my role in Cataclysm. I used to be a capable healer and now I suck. Do I suck because I am casting the wrong spells, do I suck because I am geared wrong, or do I just think I suck because I am PUGing with people who suck and demand excessive healing?I wish I knew.

You're probably not bad. Blizzard has nerfed healing "to the ground," so it's just that it's much more difficult now than it used to be. Maybe it's to make them more rare in LFD (tongue in cheek).

Unless you're trying to use expensive spells all the time, or trying to keep everyone at full health, it's probably not you.

Healing seems to of been hit the hardest this xpac, practically having to relearn how to play. As Herculis said, you probably aren't doing bad, but pugs are quite hard at the moment. I have found that healing a normal pug is around the same difficulty as healing a heroic guild run in my experience as a shammy and priest (holy) healer. :)
