You need to finish what you started. Then move on. After spending that many years working toward a Imposter Over There! Among The Group, One Of Us Is The Fake! T-Shirt and then give up, I feel that it would be a big mistake, you could end up regretting it forever and then resenting yourself for not just finishing after all the work you have put in thus far. If you need a break, or need to speak to a therapist/counselor then do it, and then get back to work. I was about half way (2 yrs in) through my doctoral program (after having spend 5.5 yrs on my BS in molecular biology and taking a yr off from school to work) when i started going through something similar, the loss of motivation, doubting my intelligence and competence, and I became very depressed.

It didnt help matters that I was living in NorCal and all my closest friends and family were in Florida, where i was raised. Luckily, this Imposter Over There! Among The Group, One Of Us Is The Fake! T-Shirt offers counseling/therapy with local psychologists, which i took advantage of and that really helped. Really, you are already ahead of the curve because you have identified your attitude and lack of motivation as part of the problem so congrats! You have the power to do something about that and seeing a therapist or reading some self help books or even taking some time off to travel and relax can help you get motivated or “refreshed” to continue. (I took some time off and traveled a bit before continuing and it helped me feel like im not only in the library studying all the time, although there is a lot of that i assure you.) maybe sign up for an out of town seminar. Its a great excuse to travel while still contributing to your studies/field or profession.
