academic anxiety coping skills PhD Life

fear of revising

I have a rather specific fear this morning. I am feeling anxiety about revising my draft of chapters of my dissertation. I feel paralyzed and unsure of myself. Like, I can’t add to what is already there because maybe I’ll mess things up! Anyone else experience this kind of anxiety and fear?

I’m going to start with prayer and meditation to alleviate some anxiety. And hen I’m going to make changes in a new color so new things I type will be easily recognizable and easy to change back later, if I change my mind. A friend told me about that method. Will get back to you on how anxiety and fear pans out. A good dissertation is one that is done. Correct?
