I am new to this site. But I have to thank my friend for introducing me to this. It is a comfort to be able to reach out in some manner, even if it means just reading about others struggles. I have been working on my Ph.D for the past 7 years and as more time passes by without any progress towards an end to it, I feel like a failure. Leads to a negative loop where I don't get anything done, not that any of my experiments yield anything anyway. I thought I had gotten over the stage where I just wanted to quit, but that would just make me feel more like a failure. In my past, I have managed to work through these feelings. Hopefully, can do the same now. What bothers me the most about the Ph.D process is the erosion of my confidence in anything I do, work or otherwise.

Coming across this post really helped me today.
Thank you,
