Lost after PhD
E

Hello,

I was an old member here, I finished my PhD in 2015 from a university in Switzerland with a high degree and then published my thesis as a book by a remarkable academic publisher. One month after my defence, my son was diagnosed with autism, We had medical and therapy appointments every day, as well as looking after his sister, I stayed in this cycle for two years, despite my conviction that my son's diagnosis was wrong and that he is a normal child, and this turned out later. I wasn't working during those two years. I left Switzerland after that, and worked at the university in another country for two years, before I had to quit my job to move to another country due to family reasons. Again, I searched for a job and started working in an online university. I am trying to find a job in a "real" university, but The interruption in my job experience, and my failure to publish articles during this period constitute a major flaw in the CV. I drowned in teaching, preparing courses and supervising students Master thesis, as well as my great commitments as a mother with the feeling that my efforts are never appreciated. I feel that I am unable to write any article, especially in English, even though I wrote my thesis in English. How can I overcome this state of loss and a sense of failure?
