Hello all. I am considering quitting my PhD. Well, let me rephrase, not so much that I want to quit, but it's just that I can't take it any more. I have no idea what I would do otherwise; it's just that every day has become an excruciating struggle that I want to end. I read somewhere that talking to someone who has quit would give you some useful perspective. So.. anyone?
Then again, if you've quit, you probably won't be posting on a biology forum.
And to specify, without giving away too many identifying details, I am in my mid-twenties in a PhD program in the US, so I am most interested in communicating with people who have quit PhD programs in the US, and to know what you're doing now, and how you feel about your decision, and also, are you happy now?
