Thesis Passed by Examiners
I just wanted to leave a short message of thank you to all my fellow members who have helped me throughout the last year, as well as tell any new members that there is hope at the end of this seemingly dark and desolate place we find ourselves stuck in.
I started posting on this forum on August 11 2012. At that time, I was in a terrible state, overwhelmed with anxiety and guilt and seemingly immobilised. I have since then completed a fair chunk of the oustanding work of my 100,000 word PhD thesis. I completed my thesis a few months ago and I have received my results and I have been awarded with a pass with positive comments from my examiners.
Now, all I need to is appear for my graduation ceremony.
By no means have I cured myself of the affliction of procrastionation. But I have discovered that is manageable and I have discovered and implemented several tools which has helped me along the way.
I just wanted to say don't give up hope and do things 10minutes at a time. After all, all we can do in writing a thesis or digging a trench or moving a mountain, is to work 10minutes at a time on one single thing.
I wish each one of you all possible success, wisdom and clear insight into the nature of mind and things.
