> i think i'm too old to be wanting a family that cares... that i'm old enough to have to be responsible for myself and not need or rely on anyone... that some things i should just let go...

You are NEVER too old to want a family who cares - all of us want, and to some extent need this to function properly. For some people it may never happen, but it takes a lot of working through to accept this. Are there any more options you can try with regards to finding a new T? It sounds like you could do with a sounding board and another perspective at the moment.

>(and at this point it seems like it will be for forever before i get any stability in my life... in med school, with lots more training still awaiting me even after i graduate... and that i won't ever have a normal life anytime soon..

LG, I'm in med school too, and I know how hard it can be sometimes when there seems no end to the stress, the workload etc, and everyone seems to be able to deal with it. The truth is you're not alone in this ok? Being stable seems a long way off, but it will happen, and the journey will get easier. I know that's really hard to believe when you are in the place you are now (to believe what I just said I have to be having a 'good' day).

Is there any chance you could take a year out to do something different and sort things out in your mind? Or would you just feel like that was prolonging the process? I'm taking this year out to do another degree, and it is *really* helping me to put things in perspective before I am on the wards 24/7.
