I'm new to this site, but my SO is a pre-veterinary student. He is currently waiting to hear back from his vet school of choice and the stress/strain it is putting on our relationship is crazy sometimes. We have the same major (animal sci) and I have a science/animal background because of it, so I understand the stress of the entire situation. But when he gets frustrated, it seems like there's nothing I can do to help. If I'm positive and try to offer solutions to the problems he's imaging, like suggesting schools he could apply to next year should he not get in this year, he gets angry and lashes out. But I also don't want to be negative and tell him he has no chance or something, and feed into his negativity about himself. I have stuck to avoiding the issue altogether, but he brings it up more and more as we get closer and closer to him getting word about admissions. I want so badly to help, but I'm not sure the right way to go about it? Anyone else have issues with this and their SO's and have any tips?
