    Hi all,

    I don't usually use forums like this but I'm just three days away from submitting my PhD and panicking a little!!

    Even though both my supervisors have said it looks good and reads well, I've spent the last few days constantly changing the structure and freaking out that it's basically a load of crap that makes no sense!!

    Did anyone else feel like this before submission?

    I'm struggling with my mindset, feeling like I'm going to fail and feeling like at this point I should be really happy with what I've written.

    Any reassurance from people who have already submitted as to whether these are all normal feelings would be appreciated!!

    I am still in the process of writing and due to submit in December. Your supervisors have said it is good, so I think it is just you panicking. Why are you 3 days away from submitting? Why can't you submit it now? Personally, I would stop looking at it and just submit to get it over and done with. You can then have a break and start preparing for your viva. Good luck!

    Thank you you are probably right!!

    Submitting on Saturday just because I gave myself that deadline.

    I go on holiday on Wednesday morning so wanted 2/3 days beforehand to sort myself.

    Thank you for your reply
