Even though I put a ton of work into making myself a good candidate for clinical psychology PhD programs, putting together applications, etc...now that my applications are submitted I feel this sense of impending doom. I feel like this is an pretty risky career path and (I know this is catostrophising) my chances of ending up single, poor, overworked and isolated from my friends and family (both during and after obtaining my degree) are increasing should I get into a program and go this route. Especially with managed care changing the viability of private practice, it's hard to get a good picture of what the options will be for graduates 6 years down the road. Is it normal to feel this way? Am I being unreasonable or is there reason to be nervous about entering the field at this time?
