The underlying stress that medical board exams bring is always somehow a surprise.

This morning my husband was asking me what my goals currently are and whether I am achieving them or not. It was an interrogation, and he seemed very displeased. It was the first time he had delved into that with me and I was completely confused about where I was and who he was.

Suddenly, in the middle of the discussion, it dawned on me: He has his medical board exams in three days!

I reminded myself to not get upset or take anything he was saying personally. I reminded him that he was just really stressed and we should probably continue the conversation after this Wednesday.

He agreed, though he seemed just a tiny bit defeated.
