My friend is a lawyer dating a doctor doing his residency now. They meet once a week because hes too busy with work / doing calls / studying exams / dunno what. Everytime they have an issue, he seems to like to play the Im very busy with work card. Her life basically revolves around his schedule / off days after calls. If you dont mind this kind of life trajectory then ok lor.

i guess certain specialties in sg would always need more consultants? maybe geriatrics?

what sort of help are you looking for? counselling? can you do it privately and in silence?
