My First PhD Crisis

And definitely not the last.  Over the last few days, I am going through this so called crisis phase.  Many friends have told me about their experiences before and that this is a common thing in PhD research. Despite bracing myself for it, knowing that it will come sooner or later, I am still not handling my emotions and stress as well as I should.  I feel a little burnt out, both physically and mentally.  I need to catch up on sleep, restructure my research direction and have more of those reassuring talks with my supervisor.
