I understand where you are coming from. I am 51 and finally entered candidacy this past spring and have made little progress in starting my dissertation. I am working as a teaching assistant, teaching two sections of a course, and I give more attention to my teaching than to my research. I am a career teacher and was raised to believe that I should give priority to my job.

I found this team just a few minutes ago and also hope to get support and motivation to complete this final journey in completing this degree.

I'm so glad I found this team! I really hope the Spark support and motivation can help with one of the more frustrating issues in my life right now - coping with my PhD...
My name is Yula, I'm from Israel, 50 years old (yeah, a grandma). I'm from Israel, RN, PhD candidate in the department of Gerontology and Health Sociology in Ben-Gurion University, Beer-Sheba.
Currently I'm in the process of data collection (my research is quantitative), which involves conducting structured interviews with patients and family members... and I'm not making good enough progress. I just can't seem to give my research the necessary priority. Which is BAD, because the graduate school dean has already noticed my lack of progress.
All this said - I'm looking for motivation and fellow travelers!
