My BF went to medical school overseas in Grenada 2.5 years ago. He comes home to visit during the winter and the summer and either of us (usually me) flys over to visit for a week during the semester. It’s been a hard road and in 2 weeks it is over!! So why am i scared? When i see him, my whole world turns to color but when he’s away i get pesismistic. I fill my time with working and hobbies since he has long hours of studying. But now, i’m afraid of what it will be like when he comes back and i can’t figure out why! He will spend 2 years rotating at a local hospital for clinical rotations and then for residency he could end up anywhere technically (although most people get hired at the hospital that they did their clinical work at).
We’ve been dating 4 years, “together exclusively” for 5 years and friends for 7-8 years. So i’m not worried about him running away, i just don’t know where things are headed. I try to talk about the future more specifically but with his stress from school, he responds that he doesn’t want to speak about the specifics but all that he knows is that he wants me there by his side. Great and all but, when where what? Medical school is so stressful for the students that i know i can only push certain issues but so much and i need to be patient and understanding (both of my brothers are doctors). Buy still why can’t i help it? Anyone have any simular experiance, stories, advice. I’d just love to hear from other people so that i could sort out my own feelings.
