It seems to be happening, finally. It's been a long struggle, but I'm hoping I can manage some high-intensity work. I've been lent a little writing eyrie, and I've spent 2 evenings there. I haven't produced as much as I'd have liked, but I am being far more productive than in the past.
Completed dissertation, here I come...and I'll know soon whether I can graduate with my classmates or not.
