If I'm not mistaken, there are several academics here (college students, PhD, researchers, etc). Reading and writing can be stressful and lonely jobs, especially when your mental health is also an issue. The academic environment can also be unsupportive, stressful and competitive. I personally am finding it hard to catch up with my readings, classes and writing. And then of course the tasks pile up and I get even more stressed to do anything. I'm just wondering if anyone is interested in having a support group? Where perhaps we can share our experiences, our goals, our progress, tips or even just to rant or ask for support.
