Thanks, everyone. Your comments have really cheered me up. I guess things aren't as bad as I thought. It's just, when you're reading through your list of corrections and see that your examiner has branded part of your argument as 'perverse', it's hard to see the positive. I know I've got to do the corrections, so I've decided to try and minimise my depression by doing a little bit of work everyday, and then doing something to cheer myself up afterwards.
I'm feeling quite depressed at the mo', and hoping someone can give me some perspective on things. Had my viva last week - I've passed, but have got 12 weeks to make corrections. Both examiners (and my supervisor) expressed some doubts about whether I'd be able to do everything in 12 weeks, but it was either 12 weeks, or resubmit (with another viva) in 12 months. Even though I've passed, I feel like I've just scraped through. And yesterday, I got my external's copy of the thesis back - practically every page is marked with corrections and comments. And her actual report was so negative that I don't know how I passed. I'm starting to think if she hadn't been friends with my supervisor, I'd have probably failed. I'm so depressed and I feel like a total fraud telling people I've passed. Any one with a similar experience/advice to get me back on track?
