Thumbs Up seniors talking badly about me

So I am from a SADC country in Africa. Decided to take the USMLE exams so that I can pursue a specialization in the US. I have quit my job to take 2 months off just to focus on studying. It was difficult leaving because I had people asking me if I am sure about my choice and some telling me I will never pass the USMLE. The gossip got so bad that a friend (supposed friend) came to tell me she was at a dinner party where people where speaking harshly and negatively about me. I was hurt because she refused to let me know who was gossiping about me.

The gossip has escalated, because I was again told by another person about it. I have 1 more month of study before I resume work. But I am so afraid to return because I know that the hospital can get really hostile with Heads of departments giving people hectic calls. I keep waking up to study in spite of the gossip, but it is also difficult., I diagnosed myself with some anxiety while studying for neuro ( could see my GABA down and epinephrine up). Hot chocolate helped bring it back to normal :-)

Just wanted to share my experience. Got to go study. PEACE!
