Just wanted to post this to make sure I am not alone

I have started my PhD a month ago, and Im so worried that I've thrown myself in the deep end, a little scared of messing this up.. is anyone else in the same position or has been there and can offer some words of advice?

Just a song for you

Duffy - Rain On Your Parade Lyrics
I wish you well
I hope you survive
I hope you live, oh baby, so I can watch you cry.

You are not alone... I'm doing my master now and my life sucks as well...
Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is like expecting the lion not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.

..."best of our knowledge, as far as we know this had never been reported before, though I can't possible read all the published journals on earth, but by perform thorough search in google, the keywords did not match any documents"...

It is perfectly normal to feel that way when starting any big new enterprise. I am sure that within a couple of months you will feel a bit better about it as you start to get results coming in and learn more of the literature.

My best advice is to read as much as you can and if you don't know something, ask your supervisor, they should be able to help point you in the right direction.
