It's really adding to my stress that two of my reference letters for CaRMS haven't arrived yet. I have enough letters to complete all of my applications but I would have like to have a bit more room to wiggle. One of the people who wrote a letter for me doesn't know me very well and I'd like to substitute another. One of the referees told me he's submitting his online - for which the deadline isn't until Nov 28, but the other person didn't even reply to my email telling him that I left a package in his mailbox. I don't even know if he got it! Dammit.

Reasons why you do not need to be freaking out:
1) You run the family medicine interest group, so you're obviously someone who really cares about it.
2) You get honours in everything!
3) You won some crazy cool scholarship from a prestigious family med society that I can't currently remember the name of, see point 1.
4) You're applying to family, not derm or optho. Family is great, but it's not like there are 15 of you competing for one residency spot.

Breathe, it will be fine!
Hope psych is treating you well!

I agree. You'll be fine. :) It is totally nervewracking, though, to have your fate in the hands of others.
