      I did have a few worries when I started my PhD, and I have found it quite challenging at times. But I’ve managed to get through it and I am nearly at the end now. And overall, I’ve enjoyed it a lot. For me, the good times definitely outweigh the bad times!

      The main problem I’ve had is that it is sometimes difficult to ‘switch off’ and properly relax, as I’m always thinking about my project and I know there is always work to do.

      I haven’t done one. My “Dr” is because of my medical degree, and not because of a doctorate. So, as my PhD husband likes to remind me, I am not a “proper” doctor!
