I wanted so much to get an education and now that I am getting it I am extremely stress out. I hate it! Achieving my Ph.D is driving me nuts and I feel depressed. I did it because I want to earn money and give my kids a better life. Right now, I am just crying and I want to quit. I want to stay home with my kids and have a simple life. I can't stand it. I am extremely stressed out. I just can't quit because I have a lot kn students loans. I don't want to put my family in and even bigger strain. I hate it! I just want to cry. I feel like my nerves are on extreme edge. I just can't do it anymore. Sorry this is a vent, I am crying, my kids and husband are at sleep and I have noone to talk to.

Can you lighten your class load a bit? You just sound overwhelmed.

Why do you need a Ph.D for your career?

It will be so worth it! Just calm down and think of the good things that will come from you getting this degree. You could go to Disney World! You could buy a house!

Clinical psychology... I am trying to find out if I can find a decent job with my masters. I just don't want to do it anymore. Today something happen I can't disclose and it threw me over the edge. It is really stressing me out.

If I could go back in time I would not choose this.

No they pressure us to finish in 6 years. We have to many classes and practices. It is really overwhelming. I cant stand the pressure of being perfect all the time. I just can't.
