    I've had multiple mental health issues, and until recently, I've mainly recovered. I've also been in a happy and stable relationship for around two and a half years.

    However, for the past two months or so I've been at university, studying a life sciences degree in hopes of going for graduate entry medicine. My boyfriend is studying medicine. The distance is minimal and we're coping fine with juggling a relationship and university, but I feel cripplingly inferior that he's doing medicine and I'm not. I can't see him as a person anymore, just an inhuman demigod and the sense of inferiority is causing a *lot* of mental health issues, I'm at breaking point.

    I don't want to break up with him because I don't want to throw this away over two months, but I don't know what to do. Advice please?

    Have you tried talking to him about it?
