Visiting boyfriend in UK. Am I letting anxiety get the best of me?

Jump to last reply

This is my first time posting here, so I apologize if this is wrong or not allowed, but I am desperate for some reassurance, or advice, as it were.

I am a 23y/o female from the US setting to go visit my 25y/o boyfriend who resides in the UK. This will be our fourth time seeing one another after about a year of being together. The first time we met. he came down to visit me for a week, then I went up to him for two and a half weeks about a month and a half later. After that, another month and a half went by and he came back to see me for three weeks. Now about four and a half months have gone by and I am setting up to go see him for about 80 days.

I made the mistake of looking at horror stories online where people said they were turned away for a multitude of reasons (some dumb, some not so dumb). So here is what I have:

-My itinerary for my trip (including my return flight ticket).
-£3,000 (GBP) cash and $3,000 (USD) in my bank account with a recent bank slip to prove it.
-A letter from my employer stating how long I have worked there and that they will see me back to work on October 13th (the day after I get home).
-A leave of absence form showing approval for my leave as well as the specific days I will be leaving and coming back.
-Medical insurance forms which show that I live with my parents and brother and will have a home to come back to.
-My tickets from my last visit which prove I left when I was supposed to.
-Some pictures of my boyfriend and I together from previous trips.
-Even pictures of my boyfriend's past airline tickets as proof that he has been down to see me.

All in all, I have a lot saying that I will be coming back. My simple question is, should I be losing sleep over this? Because I am. I am a very anxious person and I keep thinking of the worst possible outcome. The first time I went to the UK, I had zero issues. The only thing freaking me out now is that this is a much longer trip. Do you think I have everything I need? Or would you suggest I get more?

Thanks for any help and reassurance! I am really scaring myself over this when I really don't think I need to be!
